  1. I've always wanted to try putting a bend in the blade before heat treated and using a hand file to create the fuller. I saw this technique somewhere on the forum.
  2. Could you solder the pieces together while they are flat, shape and then heat to separate the pieces. Or Make a mold from wood or steel and press in a vise.
  3. John you lit the fire with this piece. I also wanted to say thanks for sharing your etching technique.
  4. Nice set of knives Gilbert. Glad to see you made it through surgery. 56 here and I'm having non emergency hernia surgery this morning. I plan to spend my recovery time making 200 plus birch bark spacers. Take it easy
  5. I'm considering their blown burner. Forge looks great too. Let us know your experience if you purchase one. I think you'll be happy with the 5" × 13".
  6. Started working on stacked birch bark Saya. Since the bark is not under compression like a handle, I have been using epoxy to make the sandwich. Only 400 more spacers to go.
  7. Decided to make a tool box so it never gets lost.
  8. Like most of my tools this one went missing. I think it's somewhere on my work bench.
  9. Thermo-Loc https://www.ottofrei.com/Thermo-Loc-Sticks_2?quantity=1&custcol_of_xc_size=3547
  10. Well I appreciate the compliments. I quenched and tempered the fancy exacto knife and tested it's function as a tool by scoring sheet rock for the bathroom. I will clean it up and call it done.
  11. Thanks Brian. I'm not sure it lives up to the quality of work other's are putting out this year. Anyways the twist is done. Just need to sand out some defects and then quench.
  12. My inspiration was squashed when my wife had fractured and dislocated her arm this summer. I did manage to make a KIRIDASHI that will have cubic twist handle. Hopefully a worthy submission and I'm not too late to participate.
  13. Looks like a perfect weight balance and handle shape for chopping through a briar patch or a bamboo forest.
  14. I finished up a mushroom hunting knife with red canvas liner and Yew scales from a 140 year old tree. The scales have 160 growth rings from end to end. When making the sheath, I tried heating it up in the microwave for 15 seconds. That was a really bad idea.
