    Three unique Kiridashis

    Hi there,I'm offering three beautiful unique kiridashis, each has it's own distinctive style. They are made from 4.5mm (0.178'') 1095 steel, all hair popping sharp.All prices already contain international shipping. First up we have a kiridashi with red tsuka ito and a delicate swedge. Due to my crappy photo setup I couldn't capture the full beauty and activity of the hamon...It is yours for $120 Next up we have the "Raven's claw", with carved ebony scales. Yours for $180 Last comes the "Harpune", a little tactical kiridashi with G10 scales, mosaic pins and a hardened glass-breaking tip at the end. $125 Thanks for looking! I had a lot of fun designing and building these three knives. Greetings from Germany, Jonas Last edited: 1 minute ago
  6. Hi there,I wanted to use my propane tank gas forge for the first time and started to slowly heat it up, but apparently I didn't let the cement dry long enough, resulting in a loud "bang", a huge flame and a hole in my cement walling. First of all, do you think the big flame that shot out of both ends of the forge was caused by the cement coming off or the other way round?Second, how do I fix the holes? Should I just put some new cement into them and hope that everything bonds together nicely? I'm a little bit lost, so any help would be greatly appreciated Jonas

    2018 Project WIP

    Great project! May I ask you how you did the Handle inlay, did you cut it out with a router or by hand? Or do you know any good tutorial for handle inlays by chance?

    Reducing vibration on my belt sander

    It has been like that since the beginning I think.
  9. Heya, My belt sander is making a lot of noise. It causes the entire workbench it sits on to vibrate, which is the main problem i think. Now I have tried rubber mats and foam mats as an underlay, but that didn't help. I propably should insulate the workbench from wall and floor to stop the vibrations from spreading further, but I dont know how So if anyone has a useful tip on what to do in this situation, I am welcoming every bit of advice! I have added a few pictures to give you an idea of the situation. Cheers! Here you can see the workbench's attachement to the wall, should i somehow insulate something / create space to the wall here? The Legs are locked in place like this, maybe i should insulate something there too?

    Some concept drawings

    Good day gentlemen, I just wanted to share some concept sketches that I drew over the last few months. May they provide some inspiration for a future handle sculptor... (The point where I actually build these Is coming near) I hope you like what you see

    Arctic Fire Backup Blade Finish

    Fantastic! I don't know if this is a stupid question, but I'll ask anyhow : I watched the 2013 Arctic Fire episode, but are there other / new episodes that I missed? I'm craving them...
