    That's amazing Ray, I'm so impressed with what you can do with just the hammer.

    Eli, It still blows me away to. Probably why I like forging so much. 2thumbs

    I got the spine straightened out and the point is now in the ball park.

    Here's a picture of the spear head which is now done except for a handle of some sort. I was wanting to get to work on it this morning but its just to cold in the shop so I lite up the forge instead. The picture is of me and my brother Gil back when we were kids with one of our favorite toys. The little skinner is for my friend James. Its almost done. Both projects need warmer temps so maybe later this afternoon.

    That's a good looking spear head and a neat skinner. What is the handle on the skinner?
    Also, where can I get a "toy" like in the picture? lol

    I have to say that the knife looks just fantastic! I'm sure it will feel even better in my hand. I like it already and I dont even have it yet, lol. Thanks Ray, I had an idea and like always you knew exactly what to do with it.

    Ray I'll have to give everyone a field report on my new knife once I get it and it sees some hours in the field!

    Hey James, Glad to hear your liking what your seeing. I had to do the Rancher Ray thing today so the knife got pushed back a few hours. I finally tricked a steer into going in the loading shoot. I gave a call to the new owner to come and get him. Had some problems getting it loaded up but its gone now. Now the mother is hanging about by the back of my shop mooing as load as she can. New due date for completion of the knife
    will be sometime tomorrow.

    Peter, The handle is stabilized maple burl. A pretty nice piece of wood.

    Ray,

    Take your time as I am never in a rush. I'm just wondering what the handle looks like in person since it looks so good in the pictures!

    Hey,

    Do you have any pictures of the Bowie that you won with Ray? I'd like to see it!

    James, Its really a nice piece of wood. I think you'll like it better once its in your hand! I'll get a better picture tomorrow after its done. I just JB Welded the guard to the blade and the handle to the guard. I'll let it set over night and get it epoxied when I first go out to the shop.

    Here's the knife that won: http://www.hawknknives.com/main_pages/ukids.html
