    Tang burning

    Dude this is awesome thanks. I have a few old kitchen knives i can make these tools from. I will still continue this knife build tho. Even tho the hole is a bit big it will still make a solid knife when epoxied and peend on the brass pommel im gonna make.

    Tang burning

    Thank you for the advice Alan i went ahead and did it and it did get the job done but left kind of a big hole ill have to fill with epoxy. Maby next time i will try soaking my antler a month or 2 before I use it i hear this method works well. I will continue on with this build and show a picture when finished. I am kind of a beginner at blade making but I will do this one correctly I burned the tang through and out the other side i will fill it with epoxy add a pommel then peen what tang is left.

    Tang burning

    Can anyone give me advice on how to burn a tang into a piece of antler. How would I keep the knife blade from loosing its temper during this process?
