  1. back in October My club held its meeting at Bill Herndons shop, I welded up a san mai billit from 1095, banding and a solid core , I thought was 1095 or O1 , well it welded great in Bill's 50ton press , but My hammer skill lack and the stack shifted when I was drawing it out so the core shifted in a odd twist of about 1/8th of a twist. this past sunday , I went to the Stroman forge and got the blank just short of heat treat seems the core has hardened enuff to resist a HSS drill so I'll be useing carbide drill that I have in My toolbox at work =( after the first. the blank is fulley ground and lightly etched to show the pattern a bit in the pic you can see the 1/8th hole half through the handle the blade is a flat grind starting just a tad infront of the halfway point of the fingergroove, the handle has a slight distill taper from that point to the butt. the core show itself on the other side just at the ridge line. I'll post pics when its done as always feel free to comment , wisecracks,insults, kinky one liners,and seax-fiend remarks are welcome Mike PS: to all My Fourm Board brothern thank you for allowing Me here and allowing My posts and pics Im very honored and humbled to be part a such a skilled and supportive group happy new years and peace love and good happiness stuff to you all!!!!!!
