Hey Everybody!

I have been out of the loop and haven't finished anything in a long time. Thankfully the Fire and Brimstone Hammer-in gave me a real motivation to finish some things up. Here is one of them.

 

A little San Mai Tanto.

 

OAL: 11.25" (with sheath) 10.5" (knife only)

Blade Length: 6"

Blade: Cable/1075 san mai blade

Fittings: Wrought iron, copper, stabilized manzinita burl, and tiger maple, secured by a brass pin

 

The knife will fully disassemble when the brass pin is removed. The tiger maple was treated with resin to seal it, then the whole knife was treated with Tung oil for a semi-gloss finish.

 

Please let me know what you think. If I can find some-one to split a table with at Blade show (in June) then i will have it with me, otherwise it will be going up for sale soon. This is my favorite tanto mounting so far. i am very happy with it.

Hamons are a painting; blades are a canvas, clay is my paint, fire is my brush. the problem is.. i am still painting like Pablo Picasso.

thanks doug,

though i am usually the one put to shame. any time i start feeling good about what i do, i go and look at stuff from Don Hanson III, Jesus Hernandez, Burt Foster, Walter Sorrells, Rick Barrett, Anders Hosgstrom or or any of the dozens of knifemakers i am absolutly blown away by, many of whome post on here. Everyone on this forum is so encouraging, and yet, they are also.. REALLY GOOD. thanks for your kind words, without the help of people like you on this forum, i would still be cutting up kitchien knives and finishing them with my dremel tool. (yikes)

 

thanks so much!
