  1. I started this journey in July of 2020. My first knife I made from a file, but never finished it. I know that I have a long road of improvement ahead of me, but I think I'm making some progress. I don't have any training with the exception of videos on YouTube and insight from people in this forum. The first image are my first two file knives and the others were mild steel. I was just trying to learn how to swing the hammer correctly. My first completed knife was a chopper made from 1084 bar stock. My first twist damascus. It was about 36 layers, I learned a lot about lay
  2. Thank you! I thought about adding the "USMC" but decided against it. (Since I have never engraved before, didn't want to risk.) I didn't even think about spacers! Thank you again! My fullers definitely need work, I've been watching videos on how to put them in.
  3. Well I completed the Kabar! It isn't an exact replica, and I'm aware of some flaws, but over all I'm happy with it.
  4. Thanks! The stacked leather proved to be a challenge for me. For the patina, I hand sanded to 2,000 grit, then I did two ferric chloride dips. First one 10 minutes, the second for 20 minutes.
  5. Update on the Kabar. This is my first attempt at doing a stacked leather handle, I definitely need more practice.
  6. I have used GFlex so far on all of my full tang knives, however I am currently working on a Kabar and was wondering if the GFlex is good for a leather stacked handle?
  7. I've been working on a Ka-bar recently. Today in the shop I worked on the tang and bevels. The pictures show what I started from.
  8. I completed this knife a couple of weeks ago. It was my first time doing a slotted guard, and I've learned a lot through this process.
  9. It wasn't today, but last weekend. I'm hoping to get some time to work on it this weekend.
  10. Done for the night. Getting close, but I'm slightly off on shape/size. Will pick up soon.
  11. What gauge square tube is recommended for making canister damascus?
  12. Thanks for the heads up on the 52100. I decided to continue with the 52100, and I'm probably going to leave the tang a little thicker.
