    Hey guys finished off the leather stacked handle I was asking about, I ended up filling the grooves in myself What're your thoughts on the blade, all metal is made from leaf spring https://imgur.com/gallery/de6kpdX

    Leather stacked handle question.

    Thanks for your responses everyone, I've decided to just do a full leather stack at the same size, i'm worried i will mess up the transitions

    Leather stacked handle question.

    Thanks for the fast response Alan helpful information as always, I've this leather i bought it's pretty thick not sol leather thick my plan at this stage is to resin cast the handle like micarta then shape off the tang so it doesn't mess with the guard. Unfortunately for the gaps, i don't think i have the capability to put them in cleanly

    46 cm machete

    blade 30 cm guard is 1cm total 11 cm for the handle and 2.5 for the pommel Blade is leaf spring, the guard is 1075, the pommel is railroad track, and the handle is stabilized wood, no idea what https://imgur.com/gallery/RpfZC4X I'm not happy with how the handle looks, looks off in my eyes. the balance ended up pretty nicely. What sort of handle should i've gone for

    how to balance a knife

    I'm making a macheting out of leafsrping and have grinded it down to about 3mm I will have a stabilized handle a 3 piece guard and a pummel made from railroad track my question is their a calculation for blade weight that one can offset the handle and pummel for a good balance? Thanks for your time

    I am VERY VERY pleased with this!!

    Do you have a large ruler you can put up against the tracking wheel and test the alignment of the other wheels, if it's out by a little it can cause this, i was having a similar issue with myn.

    Metro Exodus game replica knife

    making knives with guards is illegal in Australia, We chose not to temper it as it's more of a prop than a usable knife.
  15. Not everyone's cup of tea, i tried to stay as close to the games picture of the knife, causing a weak point in the blade and for it to snap, a lot of fun making it. I would love all feedback, and sorry i feel like i'm spamming this sub. I ramble a lot in the video, i'm still trying to get used to talking in them.
