More New Stuff from an Old Man's Front Yard

Recommended Posts

Hello:


Here's some more new stuff that was done this last week...made by an old man in his front yard.. One piece worked..the others are what I call a  "pattern fail"...The one that worked is that wavy "feather pattern" and I wasn't sure it would turn out OK but it did.... Now the others, while they are OK as far as knives go..are not what I was going for in this pattern..Oh well..as I said before...experience is what you get when you don't get what you want... Materials are 1095, L-6 and a small amount of meteoric iron.. Bovine ivory or exotic hardwood grips..all have phosphor bronze fittings..

Even with the failures..all in all the knives are OK I guess..all but one was a fail..Oh well.. At least that one came out as I wanted...sigh

Hope these pics come out alright..

Well this old man needs to get back to work...

What a total load of crap. Send them all to me, and I will dispose of them properly for you.

;) 

Seriously, nice work. I do love the bovine ivory, especially with the pins.

Absolutely love that double edge dagger with the feather pattern. My favorite style with my favorite pattern. Well since I don't have money all I can do is drool a bit. :)

The others all look great to my untrained eye.

They may not have "worked", but they sure look good! Only a mistake in your eyes cuz you know what you were wanting to get out of them. The wavy feather pattern is especially beautiful!

The wavy feather pattern is stunningly beautiful to me.  I'd be happy to own any of the others as well.   This does bring up an interesting topic though regarding "failures."

Several times I've shown someone what I have done and they don't see any mistakes or problems.  I see a lot of them.  Upon reflection I think it's really the difference between what I had intended to do (the picture in my head) and the final product.  It is a mistake or failure in the sense that I didn't get the desired results, however, other people don't know what I intended to do so to them there is no failure at all.
