    Perhaps the busiest knife I have ever made...

    Definitely an attention getter, like when a pretty woman walks into a room. Nice piece as always Wes.
  2. Great looking knife and sheath, the attention to detail, and workmanship is amazing. Thanks for sharing Steve.

    Four hunters/outdoor knives

    I have hear of makers not selling anything on the first day of a knife show, and raising prices on the second day and selling everything on their table.

    2×72 grinder; build or buy when on a budget?

    I went with an Oregon Blade Maker about a year ago, it comes with a flat platen for around $500. I also got a small wheel attachment and contact wheel with tool arms. 1 hp motor and vfd drive all told with shipping around $1300. Hope this helps, shopping around for motor and vfd can save you some money. I went with the same as a video from youtube since it showed all the electrical hook up. Electric is magic to me and I don't mess with it.

    "Sovereign" Dagger.

    Everything on this piece is so interesting, from the ridge in the blade to the rose damascus pommel. But I keep coming back to that handle, the cage bars are so cool. I look at this whole knife and start going over "how'd he do that". Great dagger Salem, Thanks for sharing.

    Buckeye Hunter - or the knife I made twice

    Very nice Wes, using W2 from Aldo, for the first time right now hoping the Hamon comes out half as good as yours. Thanks for sharing.

    "SnarkNado" Fighter.

    I have really enjoyed all the knives I've seen from you Salem but I think I like this one the best. Your design on the handle is awesome. Will we be seeing a sheath?

    Mini-Anvils, Possibly For Sale

    I'm a definite buyer as well.

    Bird and trout

    I watched a video of J. Neilson, after annealing the tang, he fit the guard to the blade, put it on an anvil and hit the guard till it closed the gaps. Took it off and cleaned it up.
