    Mark, Thanks for dropping by. I still continue to try. Been doing more hand forging in attempts to keep warm than finish work.

    Got another order for one of these Midnight'ers. Thursday I forged one blade and did another one yesterday. I've been wearing gloves while I hand forge now and I'm finding they help me grip the handle better. When I was forging yesterday I got myself a blister and I am thinking it was caused more from the gloves. My hands have gotten so soft since I got out of the construction game. Here's a photo of the blade I forged Thursday. I still need to do some tune up forging on it. The only thing used on this blade was Godzilla and hand held hammers. No grinding yet. I took photo's of the blade I forged yesterday but I can't get my computer to recognize the camera. I hope its not time for another camera. It looks pretty much the same as this one. I used a piece of saw steel for the second one, pretty sure its L-6.

    Looking great Ray! I think you nailed that design, given all the orders you're getting for it. That's got to feel good! What are you using for handles for these two?

    I'm planing on using the African blackwood I got in Little Rock. Fighter's with black handles just look right to me.

    Indeed! Blackwood is wonderful stuff to work with too. Wish I had more; only have a little of it, but I've always preferred it to ebony, for example. I'm looking forward to the upcoming pictures of these knives! Wish I could afford one; maybe I'll sneak one of your knives in with my bonus next year...

    Did the tune up forging on both blades. If you look hard at the 3rd photo you'll see one blade is setting on top of the other. Not bad for hand forging and using my old eyeball.

    I can't even begin to imagine how you can have that much control forging steel. It blows my mind! Beautiful Ray, can't wait to see the finished products...
