bigfish Posted February 2, 2010 Share Posted February 2, 2010 just finished a blade i have been working on for a while. I am very pleased with it made from a HC r/r spike it measures 11 1/2 inches long, blade 6 1/2, handle 5.Deer antler handle brass pins and polished to an almost mirror finish. I tried to stay away from the grinder and did most of the work w/a file and sand paper but the buffer w/a little emory compound went a long way. When tempering the edge got an almost perfect straw yellow and this blade actually holds a pretty good edge unlike a lot of my spike knives but recently aquired some leaf springs out of a big rig and we did some banging on some this weekend. Oh boy what a difference! we used twice as much coal and got half the work done not sure the carbon content but i'm told its pretty high.Can't wait to get a little further on them. Any and all comments appreciated. THANKS GUYS scott Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
