Theo, You never cease to amaze with some really innovative blades. Those are really cool. 

The dark side of me is thinking a skull and cross bones pommel with a halloween store severed finger and droplets of blood in the resin handle...... Ooh, I find dried up bugs while disassembling cars all the time. Some insects in a resin handle would be cool....yeah, what you are doing is unlimited on awesome design. Pump em out before someone steals the design. :(

 Keep up the awesome work.

Uh, 3D printer, casting set up, water jet. I admire your access to fun tools almost as much as what you do with them. Beautiful if kind of whacky as usual.

Waiting for the next installment as always. Frosty The Lucky.

Amazing work, as always!

How bout some .22 lr casings in a handle?

If you are going to do that how about some 45 colt shells in the handle with the bullets in the blade as part of a canister Damascus? Just need to find someone who reloads that would spare a few round parts and pieces :)

I sometimes use center fire brass, prefire the primers by heat under a plate so they do not fly into an eye, then seat them like for reloading.

You can fire .22 brass with heat also, then you do not end up with the dent in the rim, pull the bullet first of course and set up so they don't end up in your eye.

Unless the bullets are steel, they're not going to fuse in a canister weld. A lead bullet in the middle of a blade would be one heck of a weak spot, even if it did survive heat treatment.

Good point... shotgun shell and steel shot it is then :P or I suppose you could also invert and use steel casings in the blade and suspend the lead bullets in the handle too hmmm...

 If Theo could figure out a way to put the casing at one end of the handle, the bullet at the other end, and a trail of bubbles in between, that would be pretty cool.

50 cal makes for a fat handle; now if you could get some saturday night specials to add into a can weld with high C then the small caliber shells would work well---my Grandfather used to have one that fired 22 *short*!
