  1. Alder burl found in a clear cut from about two years ago. This should make a nice blade handle
  2. I often use water on the anvil when forging. I would think you'd leave the cover off for this purpose. Heat sink perhaps or the hole underneath allows expansion of the furnace without cracking.
  3. I've been waiting to see this finished. Pretty sweet looking KITH! Great work Alex.
  4. Thanks for the compliments. I am hoping to get a sheath made before the deadline and lay up a few more coats of Tru-oil.
  5. I really appreciate the blade finish. Looks like you have a nice hamon under the mustard and baked oil.
  6. Just about ready to finish this project. Here's a few pictures of furniture.
  7. Really great work! Makes me want to go hunt wild boar.
  8. Gorgeously perfect. I wonder if Hugin and Munin are one and the same just living in different periods of time. As thoughts take to flight they quickly become memories. Thanks for sharing.
  9. I'm getting close to completing this project. What is our deadline? Sheath is required, correct?
  10. I don't have a belt grinder. I'm annealing to make it easier to hand file and sand to 320 grit. Soaking at 1100 to 1200 F helped but it was still pretty hard. If I try this again, I might pack the tube with vermiculite.
  11. I have always had difficulty annealing blades and the 52100 is really difficult. I set a 3" pipe inside the forge and on a low fire can hold it at sub critical heat. I'll try annealing for an hour and see if this helps? Open to any suggestions.
  12. Thank you Francis. Jim and Ford would be pleased with your progress. Maybe our paths will cross some day. Until then keep on making cool stuff!
