I started this project a bunch of years ago and could not figure out how to get the "Timken ###### USA" on the front.. 

Dawned on me I could mount the steel on the outside of the wood..  While not my favorite way of doing it, this will work for a prototype build..  It's a gift.

Bearing came out of 2001 F350 4X4..   

Few things I will do differently next time..  

The timken was upside down so had to move the riccasso and blade edge to the other side.. Lost a bunch of material that way. 

I wanted to make a smallish skinner but the sweep was not what I was looking for so had to change the design. 

I can't find my copper rivet bar to forge rivets.. So now on hold..

Very unique design and execution.

 

Sometimes "I just thought it would look cool" is all the excuse we need to try something new.

Thanks.. 

I think the person it's going to will get a kick out of it.. 

it's plenty sharp but has not had its final sharpening. I have 1 more clean up session and then it will get sent off. 

Sadly I have just 4 days to get to its home for the birthday person.. 

The copper rod came in today so was able to get them in.

I have looked at this for a little while and pondered. I think you came up with a very creative way to accomplish the desired result. I'm not sure, if I could have figured out a better way. Well done Jennifer.

Thanks..  It was the only way I could come up with without doing a bunch more handle work.  Having the bearing profile retained and inlet from the transition point being flat was fun..  

Not as clean as I like, but for a prototype and time limit I'm a happy camper.

That's a neat and clever solution!

Only a real blacksmith would say something like that :)  I'm just a hack blade hammerer-outer and would have given up on the lettering.  This reminds me I need to go back and study your hatchet videos...

Thanks Brian.  I started my very early days as a bladesmith..  Was and interesting learning curve when I moved over to hardware and such. 

Please post back if you like the videos or not..   Feedback is much appreicated.
