    What are the dimensions of the blade right now?

    Thanks,

    Mike, I started with number 6 bar, 3/4" diameter and it was about 7" in length. I've got all the hand forging done on the blade and handle except for the ball. I'm not sure if I want to try forging an octagon or grind one. At least there's only one ball with a chance of being none. You can't tell from the picture but I did forge in an upper bevel. Mister Grinder was used for about 15 seconds to clean up the choil. Everything else was done with hand held hammers. On the rebar it use to come in different grades. The rebar I used is 60 grade and made in the USA at least 15 years ago. Right now the whole knife is 14" with a 7 1/2" blade.

    Peter, I plan to leave the ribs of the rebar on the handle.

    Ray, on second thought And after looking at the ball end, don't make any flats on the ball as I will here in the shop with a file. Please be sure that the ball and neck of same are in perfect alignment with the center of the handle please ---- I've got some ideas for this area 2thumbs.

    About to go fishing. Not going to get much knife work done today but I won't come back unless I get a 50 pound'er. 2thumbs I will settle for two 25 pound'ers.

    Thanks Ricky! The forging is when and where I design a blade. Don't ask me to draw you anything. Writing my name is a problem also. Give me a hammer and I'll beat it into shape. Often times while I'm forging the hammering is so good that the hammer turns into a pencil and then I can draw.

    I need to hit the Salmon Road........

    Peter, I got hammered twice but by the time I got the rod out of the holder they were both off. Bad enough having that happen once but twice is hard to take. Out of the 4 of us we did have two 25 pound kings on the boat. Much better than last week. I don't think we got any hits till late afternoon. We back trolled on the Washington side across from the Sandy River inlet. Got pretty warm out on the river today.
