I have a friend who's father passed away and had a pretty large collection of military style bayonets and knifes. Does anyone have any recommendations on someone who could potentially give estimates of values on a collection? I have no experience with the knife collection side of the house...
I used Gimp. There's video's on Youtube to show how to do the layering. I had another one that was more seamless. This one still shows a little line down the middle. The other didn't show shadows on the handle shot, so I stayed with the shadows. It's all a learning process!
I'm trying a layering technique to see how that looks. Please give some feedback and suggestions. I'm consistently trying to adjust my photography techniques. This is a new style knife I'm trying. Stock removal stonewashed 1084 with multi-cam G10 scales.
I use a 2" square tube (16 Gauge, 0.065" thick), and it works well. However, it does lose thickness due to scale. I currently only use it to heat treat W2 in order to do a soak at temperature. For 1084, I don't use it at all.
Facebook just showed me that I forged my first forged knife a year ago today. I had done stock removal for about a year before that. Wanted to post that, and my most recent knife. Hopefully, I'll continue to improve over the next year like I did this year.
