Yes, what a bundle of good stuff --- folders you know.Looks like we both like working on several or more at the same time and that you like the variety of styling as well as I do. Please post one or more when finished. I could see some with stag, some with ivory. some with pearl . Frank

I actually have this in another thread but just saw this post so I thought I would add it here. Wonder if we could keep this ongoing just to see what everyone is working on?

6 Hunters in CPM154, 2 Combat X in 3V and a 1095 Seax.
I've been facinated by the Seax since going to Kevin Cashens smelt. I'm still working on the sheath. A leather lined, Bear fur throated Maple sheath with ancient Germanic runes carved into the front.

Here are a few pics of the Seax. Forged from 1095 with a Sambar Stag, blued wrought iron, and silicon bronze handle. A small silicon bronze ring will be added to the butt.
FWIW, the blade is very bright. I'm not sure why the pics show a bluish tint unsure

Thank you guys 2thumbs
The history of that Blade style is facinating !!


I wanted to add something else I've been working on too. Not a knife, but knife related ;)

My wife Joanna has had the yearning to learn engraving for quite some time now.

Again, because we went to Kevin Cashens Smelt, we were very fortunate to acquire a GRS GraverMax, along with several hand-pieces :bud: 2thumbs.
Made some very cool new friends too. That was, without a doubt, the best part !

Anyway, I just finished an engraving turntable.
Next project will be an X & Y axis mini cross slide, to position the area of the workpiece being engraved at the center of the turntable.
Then a small vise on top of that. This should serve Jo well while she's learning and until we're able to pick-up a real engraving vise :o

Here are some pics of the turntable. I made it from 1/4" 1018 and used 3/16" nylon bearing balls. It looks just like a Magnum IKBS :D
A 1/4" Bybee Pivot Pin holds it all together. Oh, it's 8" in diameter.
I also did a quick nitre-blue to it.
I still need to make the tab that will allow a nylon tipped screw (or something), unsure to contact the side of the top plate. Theory being, to create a little drag so it's a bit more controllable.
To prevent chips from getting underneath via the bolt hole pattern the un-needed holes (all 10-32) will be plugged using set screws.
(10) 1/4-20 button head screws around the top perimeter for grippage and, on the bottom, (5) 1/4-20 flat head "leveling" feet

The reason the blade is blue is because you shoy the picture outside (blue sky reflection) --- try shooting pictures outside on overcast day.

Since my sabbatical from knifemaking, I have been building guns and gunsmithing. I just rebuilt this AK47 from a Romanian AK. Without going too much into it, there is a federal law called 922r that states imported AKs need to have a certain amount of USA-made components.

My next project is a old ruger blackhawk that will get some TLC and new chambering.

DAVID ---- have your wife glue the bolsters down with a propane torch & hot glue sticks onto a piece of alum. scrap plate. If this is tied down on the turn table, she should do okay.

This is in another thread as well.
The blade is gibeon meteorite shaped by Delbert Ealy.

Right now it is with Fred Rowe for the hardware. This is the design we settled on.
http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac219/burlsource/fred.jpg

It will be going to Ken Hurst for the engraving.

I will be doing the handle wood. Thinking about using some of this. ...But not sure yet.

12-23-2010, 09:48 PM
Not as ambitious as some of you. Just this one. Craig, this is a one-blade version of a certain three blade drawing you may have seen elsewhere. I did have to make some changes to the design to make it work, at least on paper. I have to fit up all the various aspects of the blade tang and see how it works for real. Oh yeah heat treat too. Wish me luck!Don

Del, If you check with Harbor Freight, they have a very nice (even for their standards) "Photo Studio", I think it is labeled Portable Photo Studio, it has a light tent, 2 lights with stands that retract inside the base, a blue piece of material that's used for a back drop, a satnd to hold the camera, not a tripod but good enough, the entire case IS the light tent, with pockets to hold everything in it. I saw the exact saw kit in Micro Mark for 89.99! HF price? 29.99, kick in a 20% off coupon and it was 23.99! Probably the best thing I've bought from them, and I buy a LOT from them, provided I can justify the cost/quality delima, AND their extended warranty is golden to me! My metal cutting bandsaw just pooped out, I was thinking I didn't buy the warranty, but had the wife look anyway, and lookerthere!!!!! I sure did, and it still has 23 days left on the warranty!!!! Took it back today, although they didn't have one in stock there is one on the truck tomorrow! I think the extended warranty was 59.00, basically for a brand new bandsaw, not bad in my book! Rex

As usual, Del knocked this one out of the park!!! PHENOMENAL! I'm in search of a power hammer, and I keep watching Meteorite Men, on Discovery, I've got to make one of these, maybe not quite this size, I just love the way the nickle (I think) makes the angular lines, and then over laps themselves going in different directions, too awesome for words! Del, will one of these make a good to decent cutter? Or is it more of a San Mai construction? BEAUTIFUL work, I hope to get that good one day, either way ....I'll did trying! Rex

Here are 2 Im working on. I flat ground these out of a billet of our damascus that we acordian cut.. (Thanks to Bruce and a few others for the WIP and tutorials.. its been a great help!)

I added mosaic damascus bolsters to one of these and am planning on using musk ox horn on that one.. The smaller one will get 416 stainless hardware and bolsters. and Im thinking ivory handles!

I also have a damascus folder in progress. as well as a gut hook with ram horn handles in the works! Its a KNIFE LIFE!!!!

definitely a learning experience.It is not finished,and I have 5 more cut out.I hope each
will be better than the last.
