Finished some knives... Both are wrought iron san mai with super pretty curley maple ( cut from the same block...thanks to Jared Stier!) for the handles. You really have to move it around in the light for the full effect. Not really any similarities beyond that First is a little quickie puukko-esque knife I made for fun. I did a bit of carving on it because I hadnt done any in a long time. I learned with this one that carving and buffing are, for all intents and purposes, mutually excusive . I'm still digging white compound out of the cracks...I'll probaby make a sheath for this one and put it up for sale.. The other one is something I finally finished up after about a year. A friend of mine is into film and we filmed a short video of me making the blade, but we never really got around to shooting the handle process Maybe I'll talk him into letting me post what we finished...Anyway, I had to finish this one up for a birthday. Wrought iron gaurd, nickle silver bolster, and copper spacers from an "unrolled" plumbers pipe. These last few I was just messin' about with the camera. Plants are cool. Before you ask...yeah we didnt really get a "winter" this year in the first place and most of the plants are confused and think its spring already... Thanks fer lookin'
