Recommended Posts

For a Blade I am Making for "Boomer" my Brother that just Passed away. Dad is a Retired SSG from the US Army and has made a request of me to make a Knife in Honor of his service in the Military and for him .

I am Not ashamed I will Seek help from my fellow Members here to help me with this project, I can carve in Bone very well as well as Fit and Finish. However, I will be seeking help to pull this off to Honor my brother as well my Mom and Dad to make a blade and Sheath worthy of the
Honor of my brother's Service in the Military and his Very Young Life. 


As this project comes together I will let you know more I hope to get things rolling very soon depending on the Help I can get with it . His Unit is going to have a Memorial Stone placed at the unit location here in the next month or so I hope to have it completed before /By then .


 I have a 1 1/4 Thick X1 1/4 Thick X 8 inch Billet made .(If Needed it will need to be Hammered into a Usable Billet/Blade) Use is Not required.


I am looking to make a Bowie style Coffin Handle. So the
blade can be engraved with Boomers full name, Military Service Emblem, and


If there a few Bladesmiths (Junior smiths, M.S.,Welcome)  Leather Sheath Makers, and Engravers that can help me out please post here & /or pm me as to what you can do to help me out .


Thank you and Best Regards
