    How do you display your knives?

    Anyone forge welded Nickle Silver

    AK, from what I have learned about putting nickel silver together from making sheaths out of it is to silver solder it. Would you by chance have an old 2"x72" you would part with?

    How in the world?

    I think that most every thing moves, maybe not mother of pearl, I have a knife i made for myself 24 or 25 years ago and the micarta has shrunk so you can catch your nail on it, I do live in Nevada and it is dry here, have sent knives to the coast and they swell up, bought a collectors knife in...
