I really like those blade profiles! Very nice
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

Awesome! Let me know if you ever need any stabilized knife scales or hybrid wood/resin scales. I make them and sell/trade quite a bit.

I have the metals set aside to do it, I am waiting until I am more confident in my forge welding, ruining a stack of 15n20 and 1084 is expensive and a loss of a lot of time. I have been playing with making 5160 and mild steel san mai. I am going to make a billet of 5160 and 15n20 to make a big bowie and a camp chopper out of.

From a hunk of mild steel, for once the forge weld went right the first time with no finnicking around! The bit is forged out of a piece of .270x2Ē 1084, I forged it down to about 1Ē wide and somewhere about 3/8Ē thick then forged in the taper. This project took way too much time and propane. I learned more on this project than any of my previous ones. I modified some of my tools and built some new ones. Made my best axe handle yet! Bought the board from local shop that milled the lumber here in my home town. Kinda cool to see something all locally made. The handle is 20Ē long

Shotty workmanship and poor quality. I'll come grab it from you tonight so you don't have to look at it and so other people wont have to see it in your shop.  :chuckle: :chuckle:

Nice work man!
