  1. The blade is just over 1” wide and the bevel currently is a little under 1/2”
  2. Should we make a poll? My vote will go to a hatchet, though it won’t be longer then 12” because I can only afford so much steel..
  3. I’m down for a hatchet, I’ve been wanting to make one. But mine will be one solid piece of steel instead of being folded or drifted.
  4. What is a good bevel height on a bushcraft knife? The stock is 1/8 thick. I know for most blades an inch to an inch and a half is okay, but seeing as this will be a small camping knife I would assume the bevel shouldn’t go up that high. I don’t have the skills to Scandi grind it so I was just going to do a flat grind. And I was originally going to bring the bevel up about an inch, but I figured I’d ask here for some advice. Thanks
  5. I like the idea of tools, another idea: how about a camp/bushcraft blade with a flint and fire steel with a small tin of some char cloth.. basically a nice fire kit. Or a seax..
  6. Tonight’s project, I gotta finish the shaping and start working on the bevels. I’m intending for this to be a small bushcraft Blade, if only I could put a scandi grind on it.. nice deep finger groove and a wide belly on it. It’s quite comfortable
  7. I would do that but I don’t have a burner yet. I still haven’t figured it ignore I want to but the black beauty burner from anvilfire or just make my own.
  8. If I were to put this forge into a fire pit to burn out all the nasty coatings on the paint can would that be okay? I should have done it before I put the kaowool and satanite in. But I’m wondering if it will be fine with if I burn everything out while the wool isn’t in it.
  9. Awesome! I love greenwood carving. I have yet to carve a Kuksa that hasn’t cracked though. I want to make a hook knife someday. Great work.
  10. Well, today I tried to forge some hooks, leaves, and knives. But it was one of those days that I ruined everything I tried to forge. I’ve decided I will never use the coal forge for blades, it just gets to dang hot! I forged out a blade for the Yakut I’ve wanted to make for ever, but I melted off the tang leaving to little material to forge another.
  11. Im down for anything, but I’d say let’s get a few more ideas on the table. I still really want to make a war club though.. a leather tool is totally fine with me if that’s what we choose, I’m going to start making sheaths soon.
  12. I agree with that, I definitely like having all the info in one place rather than multiple threads. Gonna divert a little bit from the main thread for a moment. Hope nobody minds. Anyone got an idea where I can find a NOS 16" Nicholson? Been looking on eBay every couple of days but I cant find anything yet.
  13. Very cool! Great WIP. I agree that this should be pinned
  14. Who would have thought!?! . Another idea, We could all find a picture of a historical blade (the rusty ones in museums and collections) from any time period and recreate it as best we can. I think that would be fun.
