  1. As requested. It's a bit thin near the guard, but I think itll be doable if I'm careful. I may reshape the handle design a bit, but if I go too thick itll throw off the lines with the ricasso.
  2. So sorry for your loss John. Glad to hear everyone is ok. "Stuff" can be replaced, mostly anyway.
  3. I've been practicing that skill for 20+ years, still dont have it perfected though. I may have gone a little too far lately........
  4. Been picking away over the last few days. I managed to get the main components of the handle fitted today. Picture sucks like normal. This is my first crack at a thru tang so I've been kind of feeling my way through it. I only screwed up 1 handle blank, so not too bad. Still need to trim the handle down to size and start on the buttplate, maybe tomorrow.
  5. My guess is deadbeat burglars. Good for you for having the balls to protect what's yours, not that I can say I'm surprised coming from you. Hopefully the word will spread throughout the underworld that yours is a house to leave the hell alone!
  6. That's pretty much what I've decided on doing. I haven't been too happy with my sketch of the handle/pommel, I took some time and drew out several different designs today. I think I finally stumbled on one that I like. Hopefully over the next week or two I can get this blade wrapped up.
  7. I spent the day trying to work from home. The kids have already exhausted our high speed internet package for the month, so we've been throttled back. 0.1Mbps download speed on my Hughes net satellite internet is a freaking joke . I ended up taking a vacation day as I got almost nothing done. We're supposed to be working from home every other day for the next three weeks. It's going to be interesting to say the least.
  8. Geez man! How many power hammers do you need? Smurfette isn't enough for you?
  9. 4" should do the trick to straighten your bevels out. Just take it slow and you'll be fine.
  10. The wife didnt want my help painting today, so that meant I got another day of shop time! After a couple of starts and stops, I finally figured out a decent way to get the rest of the top profile ground into the guard. I still need to decide on the, for lack of a better term, frontal profile though. I sketched a couple of options that popped into my head: Thoughts?
  11. Today I finished hand sanding and managed to get the guard bent and slotted to the tang. Hopefully I can get it trimmed to size and profiled tomorrow. We'll see how much shop time I get, the wife is on a painting and reorganizing kick right now.
  12. I'm really liking what you did with the 416/bronze combo. I've been toying with a similar idea for the guard on my dagger. After seeing that, I think I'll play around with it a bit this weekend and see if I can pull it off.
  13. I gotta say that your fit and finish has always been top notch, but that puukko is really something else. Glad to hear you're back up and at it.
  14. I bet it feels good to finish up a batch that size. Outstanding as always!
