  1. That should look pretty slick Ron! I, for one, would like to see it when you finish it .
  2. Always remember the 7 P's Proper Planning and Preperation Prevents Piss Poor Performance.
  3. Dont mean to derail the thread (pun intended) but... These things? If so, I have quite a few of these sitting around the shop. I've never tried to forge one out though, and I'm not sure if they're Pandrol brand or not.
  4. Dude, seriously.... that thing is awesome! A work of art. I'm sure the Firebeards are proud. Killed it, man! Looking forward to seeing the sheath.
  5. Impatiently awaiting the pattern reveal, Gary . Seriously though, cant wait to see this.
  6. A summer's worth of trials with the river clay. And a summer worth of failures. I cant seem to make anything that will survive heat. I believe this is because of my firing setup. I'm going to try using a pit furnace next, instead of an exposed fire pit. I think the inconsistency of the heat is my downfall. Just need to figure out how to get some consistent airflow going into a pit. And I need to get it done before the ground freezes . Just figured I would give an update, I've not abandoned this yet .
  7. Very cool! I really like them. Neat idea.
  8. I really like that color you got from the vinegaroon, I'll have to try that sometime. I've only ever used it on wood, gives a nice aged look.
  9. Whoa... that's crazy looking so far. Cant wait to see it progress.
  10. So it turns out I'm not the only one with a home defense ax at the ready!
  11. Dude! That looks shweeet! Nailed it on that carving, man.
  12. You know, I've always wanted to try water quenching a W2 blade, I'm just not looking forward to the anxiety filled pacing in the shop prior to HT . Really nice hamon @Joël Mercier
