GASP! A knife with no 3D printed components; what's wrong with me? Forged this guy lil over a year ago, just got around to putting some finishing elbow grease on it. The hamon came out something funky - not bad but not visually appealing to me - so went with a more satin finish. The scales are cocobolo, which in hindsight should have been pinned, although since it's an integral they would still be hard to get off. Comments and critique always appreciated, Theo
Welders Is there a process that I can use to join W1 drill rod, to 6061 aluminium? I am considering Loctite bearing and sleeve retaining compound, but I would prefer a better fusion. I have a DC arc welder and oxy torch available. What I have in mind is solder or brazing and relatively low temp to avoid a heat affected zone on the drill rod.
