Working Around the Heat

Recommended Posts

It was a little too hot to do any forging today but was a good day for checkering handles:

Nice.  As many years as I've worked with guns (non-commercially), I've never done any checkering.  Need to look into that.............if I ever learn how to forge a knife!  ;)

Those look great.  Checkering really does add a classy aspect to a knife, wish I was adept at it also. Clint

I have done quite a bit of rifle stocking (over 35) but have not been able to get my hands and eyes to cooperate with checkering. bouthe a kit and tried several times but ended up exceptinmg that there are some things that I have to leave to others. I respect those that have this coordination of hand and eye to do so and the added visual it brings to a piece (as well as the added grip of course).
