    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.
  4. 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.

    Question regarding a forged finish with a stonewash

    hey thanks for the comments guys, I did mean tumbling sorry I ended up etching it to clean off some of the scales, then i tumbled it for about 10 mins by hand. this's currently what it looks like. I'm going for a battle-scarred m9 bayonet from Counter strike source, the last photo I will be doing a leather stacked handle instead of the fiber glass micarta they normally have. what do you guys think of its current look ?
  11. Hi guys, Question is it beneficial at all to clean this heat treated knife up then acid etch before the stone wash, Or could i acid etch then stonewash straight up. is their any differene? i've brought the knife up to about 400 before ht thanks =D

    New style of chefs knife for me

    The handle looks great, i would have picked some sort of wood if you didn't say Micarta
