    Sambar, bronze, and hamon

    Others use McMaster carr I should also say it was 954 bronze. A lot of people order from McMaster Carr, but that can be overwhelming as there are a tremendous amount of options.

    Ed, I think it’s just pics. The grind goes all the way up and pics have a shadow. I can take better pics when I get the etch done.

    I just got this on eBay. Not cheap, but reasonable.

    Sambar, bronze, and hamon

    Still in progress, but I can never wait! Sanded to 600 grit. There is a hamon in there and I will etch once I get it to 1500 grit. Decided to leave the Sambar untouched. The addiction continues.

    Sambar EDC

    The stag was filled with epoxy, very little in this case, and then it all sets up. Then I will create some fixture to get it on the drill press level so the hole lines up on both sides. I usually place the ricasso on a block so I know it is level. Then I will stack something under the other...

    Sambar EDC

    No secrets here. The tang does not go all the way through. It goes about 3/4 into the stag. I am going to put a pin in it more than likely. The butt is just carved out and another piece of Damascus inserted in there. I do not like pith showing. I was trying to showcase as much of the stag...
