  1. I've looked at that but what I'm looking for is like a package deal of assorted scales. Different colors in looks but definitely at least in pairs.
  2. I like the looks of the synthetic materials such as g10 , micarta, ect... I was wondering if there is somewhere I can buy in bulk but different colors and patterns. Not just one color and style.
  3. I believe this is what he was referring to. You also said it would be a grey color. Would that add a 3rd color to your Damascus?
  4. This is really just an off the wall question. I read somewhere that people save the shavings from grinding and such to use as powder steel in canister Damascus. It is so they know exactly what steel it is. What would be the result of the powder steel you would get from working a Damascus blade? Would it even work or look any different?
  5. I can get my hands on a 1 x 30 belt sander. I'm primarily thinking that would be used for shaping handles... What grit would I use for the blade? Just wondering in general as I'm looking into 2 x 72 belt grinder...
  6. Yes, I have an angle grinder... I'll just list what I have so far... Angel grinder Bench grinder Air compressor (for making resin scales) Bench vise What I'm looking at getting Drill press Band saw I know I need files but what kind do I need and where is a good place to find them The forge and bigger equipment such as power hammer i have access to in a rental studio situation so i will make the basic metal there and do the stock removal method at home... So any thoughts on equipment would be appreciated.
  7. I have a bench grinder... Can I make the bevel with that?
  8. I was told I would need a belt grinder... Searching online I can only find belt sanders... I looked for grinding belts but again only found sanding belts. What is it I need?
  9. Thanks for the input... I was looking into the engraving for a maker's mark already. I was thinking since it's a folder putting the lettering on the handle would be more visible.
  10. I just started making blades. I forge weld a Damascus sheet at a studio. When I'm done I go home and cut out blades using the stock removal method. I've just started so I'm not at this point yet. What if I took all the little pieces of the Damascus steel and did something like a canoe Damascus with it? Would it look cool? Would it even be possible? Just the kind of stuff wondering around in my head.
  11. I'm starting knife making. I have an idea of what I want to do but not sure the best way to do it. I want to make lock back folding knives. I have a few people I'd like to make them for. But to make this short I'll just get to the question. I want to make custom handles. I am looking into alumilite resin. I understand the casting method. Some people want initials on the handles others last name ECT... My question is how can I put lettering on resin knife handles? Or is there material I can use to get custom colors and lettering?
