Had a lot of fun making this, discovered it's quite hard to make a knife to fit a sheath!!!(I normally do it the other way around, but as my good friend KT sent me the sheath, I tried to make something to 'go with it' allways liked the old 'shefield look' so here is the toothless wolf, courtesy of some over zealous hammering, ( I need a press!) At least it's all in one piece! Etched with 'pickling gel, which I use when soldering stainless...DSC00862.jpg

Yes the whole package works Miles and KT. Miles I saved a photo of your file work once before, and I am saving this as well because I would like to imitate it.

The bluing though really adds contrast to the white antler. I have to ask how you got such an even finish, I usually streak mine?

Thanks all! Gary the 'pickling gel' seemed to help, as it always streaks when I use Holts cold blue, but I smeared it on quickly with a cloth, and it's the best result I've had! You'll need a round, triangle and flat file (with toothed edges) for this pattern, I usualy use a half round in stead of triangle, but can't for the life of me find it!

those two look great together. Yes - you need a press! We all need a press (can't run a home or raise a child without a hydraulic press)!

 

seriously, that has the right look with just a bit of pattern welding to jazz it up.

Thanks prof. I was cringing waiting for your crit, as you always call a spade a spade, (a few others do too!) So I'm a happy chap with all the positive feedback! (Next one will be beter!) Thanks all!
