  1. Thank you for sharing Colonel Mustard! I've been experimenting with this and it's a hoot. I have a question regarding putting on the handle/scales and grinding them after the finish is applied. So say for a full tang, I have been pre-grinding my scales on the knife prior to patina and then fitting them on the best I can after the patina. Is there a better method? The reason I do this is because I'm afraid of grinding off my finish when I grind the scales after the patina. Thank you!
  2. That totally makes sense! Thank you for all the information.
  3. Nice setup! I would be interested in an update after you’ve been able to use it more, and thanks for the update!
  4. Is a manual press practical for forging like these? https://www.harborfreight.com/20-ton-shop-press-32879.html I see a lot on hydrolic presses here but none on manual so I’m thinking it’s not. Thank you!
