  1. Finally got around to starting my blade for KITH. I’ve done a medium sized paring knife.

  3. Finally got around to making a seax. I think it’s somewhat accurate to what a broken back seax should look like, but I will let those who are more knowledgeable in that field than me decide. Antler bolster and burl of some sort. .
  4. First time grinding anything with a clip point. I got the handle material from a member of the forum a few years ago. I think the knife was giving off some sort of western vibes so I threw a couple guns in the back round. Couldn’t decide which photo I liked better so I put both on here. Thanks all
  5. Thanks, it’s about 9-1/4” long
  6. Here’s my take on a bird and trout knife 1084 and box elder burl. Definitely going to be testing it out on some trout in the next few weeks! Thanks
  7. Best work to date I think. 1084 and box elder burl. Still much to improve on! This is the first time I’ve stitched leather, quite a learning process Thanks
  8. After upsetting the bolster on this chef there was not enough material to pull a tang out of, the two options I’ve thought of are welding a tang onto the bolster, or drilling and tapping a hole to screw a tang into the bolster. What’s the best course of action? Thanks
  9. Honestly I didn’t really have any idea of how to shape it any If it. I just ground and filed the bevels of the main portion of the handle and cleaned up the transitions between the head/handle and handle/butt to match with the height of the handle bevels. If that makes any sense..
  10. Finished this beast up today. Curly maple and farriers rasp. Sculpted the handle mostly with files. First time using the ameribrade I got last year, worth every cent. And the first time grinding 4 bevels, unfortunately I scuffed the blade a couple times and didn’t see it till I glued it all up.
  11. finally finished this one up after starting it last year and losing it for several months. 1084/15n20 twist from a billet i was given a while back. I took the edge to 0 and it is very thin at the spine so it cuts like a laser. I still have tons to improve on but I quite like it.
  12. Been a minute since I made a sharp thing. First attempt at forge welding, and the first chisel I’ve made. Wagon tire wrought and a small piece of 1084 (I think) and some curly maple. Few things wrong with it but they are only aesthetic for the most part.
