  1. Those are both of the things I’ll be using this one for.
  2. Thanks Geoff, I’m gonna buy the O1 guide, and when a have some more money I’ll try at making my own.
  3. Would the one I linked above be able to hold to a file for at least one blade? It says it’s 61 Rockwell, but I don’t know how hard Nicholson’s are. I just need it for my kith, I want that to be as good and consistent as possible.
  4. Yeah they seem pretty handy, I’ve wanted to get a couple from Bill but I can’t afford a carbide one, that’s why I want to by the guide without carbide and glue some of onto it.
  5. I’m having a difficult time getting the plunge lines to be in the same place and same angle on both sides of the blade. So the file guide will eliminate the problem
  6. Forgot to mention, these will be the scales for the thing, any idea what they are? Looks like dyed box elder, but I’m not sure.
  7. Ive been thinking about this project for months, and there is no way i am able to do this, I Have any idea how i could get the mild steel faces totally trued of together perfectly flat. So have another idea, https://usaknifemaker.com/file-guide-precision.html Im going to buy this, and glue 2 carbide pieces onto it. I don't care if i have to constantly re glue them, all i need is for it to make my plunge lines the same on both sides. Will this work...?
  8. Still some shaping to be done, but I need to get some more dremel abrasive drum things.
  9. Thanks Bruno! I do like the choil, I’m definitely gonna make it smaller though. Haven’t started on this dang knife yet, I’ve been out rafting on the peyette river.
  10. Alright, here is my design, If you have any design input feel free to share, Its about 6-1/4 long, but its a big ole edc, (Ive seen bigger) This is a very rough sketch. Im allowed to do stock removal for KITH right? Lets hope so because my forging skills are not that great yet. I was originally gonna do a friction folder, but i decided I would rather stick to a fixed blade, This one looks pretty big, but its going to be a very slim blade so it can fit in the pocket better. Let me know what you like/dont like. re.
  11. Decided Im gonna use some Koa for the handle, and i might try to make a one of them Saya things, Thats how you spell it right??
  12. Wow indeed! Thats pretty amazing, And a complete step up from your already amazing work.
  13. Okay, thanks. I’m gonna have to put this one on the back burner for a few month or so, I really need to start my kith, I’m gonna try to make a Yakut for it, and as a write this, I’m realizing that the blade will have to be 3 inches or less.. Small Yakut I guess. So I’ll be back to this WIP shortly
