    KITH WIP- Indian Hunter

    Someone write down that I'm the first to post a WIP for the 2014 KITH. Anyway, I've drawn up a design for a heavy Indian hunter, or maybe war knife. It'll be nice to put in my silversmithing skills finally. The blade will be 1084, forged fairly thin. I may decide to use no electrical equipment in its construction. Blade will be inlayed with brass, carved in while annealed and inlayed with annealed brass after heat treating. I'd like to inlay it beforehand, and so melt the brass in place, but it may drip out. I've experimented a bit with pewter casting, and so will cast a handle from that, and inlay it. I'm luckily in California, where its pretty easy to get exotic stones from dealers. I'm thinking either a small emerald (low quality but still very beautiful) or a purple and pink Ruby I managed to get a while back. Thoughts and suggestions?
