  1. The trade item for our December meeting is a Christmas ornament. This is what I came up with.
  2. Happy Birthday pal and wishing you many more!

  3. Thought I would try to make a "skeleton" handled knife. The first attempt was not quite what I had in mind. So the second picture is after chaneing some steps and adding some steps in the handle forgeing process. Let me know what you think. Aaron
  4. I purchased a drift from Kayne and Sons and am very pleased with it. the top has mushroomed a bit but I keep it cleaned up whith the belt sander and it has not been a problem. Aaron
  5. Tiapan Thanks for the nice coments. The last one was a big hunk of mystery steel. The leather wraps are stitched on and held in place with apolstery tacks or copper and or brass plated brads. Aaron
  6. CurlyGeorge I managed to get the first image resized. The rest of them are not cooperating . Aaron
  7. ]The camera was laying on the table so I took some pics of my most recent hawks.Critique is welcomed. Aaron
  8. Thanks for the replys. I ordered a drift and a handle from blacksmiths depot. Will probably order some more handles from haversack/blackbear trading as well. Aaron
  9. I am currently making my own hawk handles and I have a drift that I made. This has been working so far. But I would like to buy a drift and the handles. Was wondering if anybody could recomend a source. I would prefer to purchase both from the same source. I have googled it and there are several choices. Just wondering if anybody had a prefferance.

  14. You might be a blacksmith if you have ever used a dutch oven and an oxy/accetaline torch to cook anything. A.S.T.
