  1. Awesome thread! Thank you for posting!!
  2. Awesome as always!! Very nice design! I'm looking forward to watching you win 10k on your forged in the fire episode!!
  3. You guys are awesome!! Thank you so much for the ID! I never doubted for a moment that someone on this site would know what it was. Such a great place with such a diversity of life experience someone was bound to know. Thanks again!
  4. Frosty, I totally agree, it was the part that I really wasn't happy with. The friend I was making it for is a short guy like me and he has small hands so he kept telling me to make it thinner until it was too thin for my taste but he loved it. You're right about it being too round, I'm chalking it up to inexperience and learning from it. The next two knives I made came out much better by knowing what to avoid and what to shoot for. I'll be posting them soon! Steve, I had planned on doing the fuller as well, I agree it looks incomplete. The guy I made it for was around the shop a lot while I was working on it and he told me he liked the contrast between the polished and unpolished metal. I personally think he got a real sense of how much time went into the sanding and finishing process and got a little too anxious to have his blade. Some people's kids....
  5. Thanks! It was a blast to make! Its my fourth finished blade and leagues better than the first 3.
  6. Wow, it does look like that hatchet stake!
  7. I've been meaning to post this for two months now. I always seem to have time to read 4 to 10 posts made by other people everyday, but can't find the time to make one of my own. The blade is 5160 and is 10 1/2" long with a distal taper. I made this one for a friend and it's the longest blade I've finished. I poured my own brass for the guard.
  8. Hey guys, today my neighbor brought me two of these and said they were in the garage when he moved in 10 years ago. Neither of us knew what they were my guess and was some kind of harrow or grader bit but it's totally a guess any help would be appreciated
  9. Worked on my pot rack for the kitchen.
