Gabriel James Posted April 13, 2016 Share Posted April 13, 2016 So, im doing a self inflicted lesson on hidden tang knives and guards and such. In particular i am working on a single guard for a small knife out of wrought. My initial attempt was to drill on the press and connect the dots and file. Well, that takes.... literally forever, and im still not done. Are there any low tech gadgets or techniques (budget friendly) that will enable me to more readily and easily create tang sized holes in guards and handles? I have not made a slotted punch just yet -- nor have i devised a specific desired tang size to stick with to make this process smoother ( my forged tangs seem to be too thin). Any other feedback would be great. Dremels tools anything similar to aid the process? Thanks as always Gabe Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
