    Interesting. I can drill some holes and pin it up. I will need to plan a cool pattern for looks and function.

    Serrated, plain edge or both? - Survey

    I usually like a straight edge, but for cutting gear and clothes off, I love my Spyderco.

    Drill press? I guess I will need to find one to use. I got the wood from a pallet and cut it to smaller pieces. It sounded like I cut the tree down. Would peaning rivets work? I like the copper rivets look. Where would I get the screw in rivets?

    New to Kansas

    It was in the 100's in Georgia and in Kansas it was kept indoors for the cure time. The wood is oak and it has been dry for a long time. I cut it down but didn't get to glue it for a few months. How do you think I should drill the metal? It is hard as a saw should be. Thank you for the help.

    New to Kansas

    Hey all, I am here and new to Kansas so I am kind of a transplant. I started making a knife before I left Georgia(it started a long time before) and I had the wood handles glued on with Gorilla glue before we left . We got our stuff and I started working the wood again and the wood was seperated...

    Super glue finish on stabilized wood??

    I made some utility knives and a chip carving knife and I finished them with super glue. I taped the handles and didn't want glue all over my hands so I put on nitrile gloves. The glue didn't stick to the gloves at all when I was rubbing the glue into the oak. I don't remember any glue on the...

    What's your production EDC today?

    It varies between a few. Smith and Wesson special ops(it is down now, I am making a better blade for it out of high carbon steel). CRKT M16 with a tan handle. Old timer improved muscrat when I am feeling nostalgic. I carry now an Imperial pocket knife with a bale. I made a clip so it is easy in...

    Time well spent

    Thank you, I have a few projects to finish still. Time is elusive. The wood is oak I got from some pallets and copper pins from some wire. That the workers left behind. I want to make some more knives. I have done some handles and working on four replacements now. I have four I completely...

    Time well spent

    Here are two knives I made in Iraq from one old kitchen knife that the Iraqis broke the scales off from. In the bigger knife notice the twisted copper wire that I used to fill in where the bevel is. It is a great utility knife with the hand made sheath. The smaller one I made as a chip carving...

    I'm looking for a left handed (ambidextrous) folder knife kit?

    It looks like there isn't one made or no one knows of one. How creative are you? You could make mirror image scales so right and left looks the same mirror image. It will be ambidextrous but have the liner lock on the opposite side. Or a good lock back with a thumb stud and back it out and put...
