  1. If I made this knife package I'd find it difficult to let go. Excellent job!
  2. Looks like a WIP in progress. Like the fact that you used recycled material. Years ago when I got into knife making hand forging was to of my list but found very little on the process. When I got into tomahawks and small axes the seat of my pants got wore out. Thanks for your information and photo's! I see your anvil is in bad shape but it still works.
  3. Doing the OKCA Show next weekend. Its the only show I do anymore and am looking forward to its opening. As you can tell I forged another ax head and just finished up another knife. The knife has a 5 1/2" 1065 blade, mild steel fittings and a sambar stag handle. 9 1/2" overall. Ax head is 4 1/2" and haft is 8" and made out of hickory.
  4. Slit and drifted. I've done a few wrapped full sized hawks. Might be able to do a tiny single bit ax but can't wrap my head around to do a double bit ax head.
  5. I've had the small hunter done for a week or so and just finished up the bow tie ax today. The hunter has a 4" 52100 blade, salvaged steel and wrought iron fittings and a sambar stag handle. 8" overall. The ax has a 1065 head and oak handle.
  6. Since the birth of the pickax I got the urge to make a mini ax and ended up making two more.
  7. Overtime my belly has gotten bigger and my bowies have gotten smaller. There was a time when my bowie blades were as long or longer than this bowie at 13" overall. This one has a 8 1/2" 52100 blade and an ebony handle. I salvaged 1/4" steel from a salvaged car part and used that to make the S guard. The other fittings are wrought iron.
  8. Robert, The handle does not go with this style blade. A straight blade should have straight handle. The knife needs to flow together.
  9. Cal, The photo's in your first post are now appearing. Thats quite a twist.
  10. Still no photo's. I just drag my files to where the paper clip is and it works just like magic for me.
  11. I hadn't been paying much attention to GRT49 ever since I got her half'ted. She just sat on the cluttered work bench looking pretty. Guess she got bored and then she became out of control. Every time I'd go into the shop there was another hole dug into my crushed rock floor. I finally had to put her in a cage so she would stay put. Once I got out to the shop this morning she was acting a little better so I let her out. I decided to clean up the cage and mixed up in the bedding I discovered she had given birth. I should have recognized the signs. Its a boy with a 3 1/4" head and is about 5" tall. Soooo cute!
  12. I did not make the pick ax head. I purchased it at a knife show several years ago. I did make the handle.
  13. Almost a tomahawk, maybe a substitute.
  14. I found the horse head on the blade. I win.... Really nice work of art! Exceptional....
