  1. 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
  2. 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..
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Thanks Don! It’s super similar in color but it’s actually padauk.
  7. With no expectations of it working, I forge welded a small billet of wrought/1084 laminate held together with steel wire and without any flux And to my surprise it worked. It will be drown out and made into a small wood chisel. And here’s some cutting boards I’ve finished up recently
  8. Today was spent in someone else’s shop. Layers of 1084 & 15n20 drawn out and twisted, twists drawn out, cut into sections and surface ground, final stack has 5 layers total. a twist core with 15n20 on the sides and then another layer of twist on the outsides. It’s been a busy day
  9. Sorry y’all, I’m gonna miss out as well haven’t been able to make knives almost at all this year so far. Hopefully that will change soon!
  10. Bladesmithing is temporarily paused while I work to afford it. So Into the realm of woodworking I go! first 2 of 5 cutting boards are almost done. all they need are juice grooves and finish sanding. Plenty more are on the way
  11. Ameribrade 2x72 has arrived Tool arms get here soon. This will be a game changer for sure
  12. Coffee etch and a little oil.. very happy with it. My grinder finally broke down so no handle or any more knives for a while, but there’s an ameribrade 2x72 coming soon.
