  1. Hello, I had a question about a bone handle I'm working on. I took on the project of a viking style of knife and have a brass-antler-wood-bone-brass sandwich going on, that I'm going to carve some designs into. The only antler I have is a bit too big for the handle and I have to sand it down. I was just wondering how far I can go, and if I can go into the slightly porous section without completely trashing the handle. Thanks.
  2. First commission! Woot! I was going to call it the Basilisk or some other such thing, but it was decided that it needed to lose a few inches in length, which resulted in more of a resemblance to a talon than anything else. Not complaining. Materials: Aldo's 1084, HRC ~62 Radius Emerald Camel Bone 3/32" stainless welding rod (had to post photos directly from computer, received a "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community" upon trying to post containing links from photobucket. Checked the image posting topic but didn't see anything new, has there been a recent change?)
  3. This is a beautiful knife. Coming into the circuit from Charleston, SC this knife weighs in with a 3.5" blade and 7.25" overall with a 1084 steel blade with a warthog snout notch, iron fittings and deer leg bone handle. The hardware lines up nicely together for a snug, tight fit. The filled handle gives the overall balance a nice hefty feel. It’s packed with warthog stabbing power. This will be for sale this weekend at the Battle of Charleston Reenactment this weekend. I will be in the Blacksmith area where we will have live demonstrations going on and fulfilling custom orders on the spot. It was a blast making this one although there were some tricky aspects. I had to fill the inside to fit the blade securely. No problem, enter wood filler epoxy. The blade is secured three ways, 1) Filler epoxies, 2) Solder and 3) Tang peening. This knife build came together quite a bit easier than some of my other projects (I must be getting better... I hope that's what that means).

  4. This is a recent commision which has consumed my life for the last 9 months or so. It is forged out of 3/8" x 1 & 1/2" W2 bar purchased from Aldo Bruno, the NJ Steel Baron. The customer took a very active roll in the birth of this sword and had a hand in every step of the process. This would not work with everyone but, this time, it worked out beautifully and he has a true appreciation of all the hard work and artistry involved. Currently, the client is polishing the sword and it is between 900 and 1200 grits. I supplied it to him at a 600 grit finish. The owner of this sword (and his college age son) have been doing extensive cutting and he intends to use it during a cutting event sponsored by a local Aikido Dojo. I am eagerly looking forward to the event. STATS: W2 Steel 25" blade (right at the length of the largest historical example) 2 & 1/8" wide at widest point, just under 2" at narrowest point (1/8" wider than historical examples) 8" handle (from front of guard to end of rivet) Weight is just under 2 pounds (I added weight, in the form of lead shot, in the handle to balance the blade) Handle is constructed from Padauk wood, Cow bone, Bronze sheet, Steel rivet block, Lead Shot, and Epoxy Blade features a raised rib down the center, which is much wider than historical examples, with a re-inforced tip ~Bruce~
