I'm going to wrap it with hemp and rattan and probably make a scabbard for it.

Did I say "!8", I meant 18 inch.

 

"Cause I'm 18!"

All I need is a new heat treating forge and a longer quench tank.

 

I think I can... I think I can... I think I can...

I better not Don. That's too long for a knord.  :banghead:

 

I'll go 5 and 7/8ths inches longer maybe.

Another great blade, where did you get the idea for the handle from?

 

I recall you mentioning that you are both a jeweller and a blacksmith. My sister is a jeweller and I am interested in the techniques she uses. There seem to be some common techniques and tools between the two crafts, but there are also many that are not. I am curious as to whether jewellery techniques could be applied to blacksmithing and vice versa. In your experience, does this happen or do you see the two as seperate crafts?

Socket type handles have been around a long time. Most of mine are inspired by the Filipino knives.

 

Yes, blacksmithing and jewelry can feed each other.

Do you think the bush whacker looks more like a tool or weapon?

I see it more as a tool first, but under the right circumstances, it could get ugly.

Tool - unless in West Africa.   :(

All knives are tools, but all tools are not... ?

Tai,

 

 These are beautiful, but mean looking! Wether it looks more like a tool or weapon would depend on the expression on the weilder's face... :D
