  1. Thanks Alan. LOL I haven't made Damascus in years. Those are etched blades using a technique I developed. Simple really. Engine enamel spray paint and multiple layers from a distance with multiple etches. Spray as if you are spattering with a toothbrush. My market was more stainless knives and Stainless Damascus is stupid expensive. Thanks Gerhard, Appreciate it
  2. And here are a few from last year
  3. I see a few posts here on slipjoints. Not quite bladesmith related but they were my staple for almost 8 years and about the only thing I was making. Thought I would share some pics. Admins can delete if inappropriate. This is one I finished off this week
  4. Ucelemba - pronounced "xta-lemba" Zulu for cane knife or bush knife. Forged this one out yesterday and added a wood scabbard with raw hide covering. Blade is 5mm by 250mm with distal taper Thanks for looking
  5. I haven't forged san mai in ten years. This was a piece of nickel plated mild steel with 1085 core. Handle is fire hardened bamboo with raw hide wrap. Hand forged in coal. Will do a raw hide sheath tomorrow Thanks for looking.
  6. Been a busy week. Got some hides, 2 full Nguni hides and 2 smaller antelope. Started with the antelope and processed into raw hide. Forged out some bearings And then made a frontier sheath
  7. Thanks, appreciate that It is a old Nicholson file. Thanks
  8. Nicely done. I need to make one of these soon. Not looking forward to it.
  9. Finished this up yesterday. Little Yakut as raw as possible with bamboo
  10. It's been forever since I was here last. Somewhere along the line I got caught up in the whole pocket knife thing and that's about all I made for almost 8 years. Sold most of my tools last month. Deleted every single one of my social media accounts with about 8 years of accumulated followers. Bought some forging equipment and started up the fire last week. Words do not describe the smell of a coal forge lit up. Like coming home Probably going to be poor for a long time to come LOL
