    Interesting anvil comparison

    More rebound is better for sure. The big German anvil in the video would be the best choice then the first one and lastly the round piece of steel. The thing is any of them will work! If your starting to forge spending a lot of money for an anvil is a waste. You have no likes dislikes or...

    First slip joint

    Following, I semi built one. I copied the blade and replaced it in a cheap lock blade. Learned a bunch. Have not done one from scratch though. I'm mostly concerned about hardware it's really expensive and there's a lot of it!! I don't know what to use!!

    Cheap Drill bits

    I agree to most of what you posted. But I bought Drill bits and as far as I'm concerned they are a consumable item so I will be buying more soon. If they work decent maybe from them, if not I can always go to Fastenall and spend more! But I was there they were on sale I needed them so I bought...

    Cheap Drill bits

    I was at Harbor Frieght today they had packages of 7 drill bits in common sizes that I use for making my knives. 1/8" and 1/4" they had others but I didn't think to look at those because I needed the 2 sizes I listed! Anyway if I remember the 2 packages of bits were around $11 with tax! I was...

    Grinding position

    The patina looks like that mustard patina that everyone was doing a couple years ago? Definitely a hollow grind though!

    Pearlescent pin

    Have a customer that wants a knife and wants the pins to be a Pearl finish on them. I can't recall seeing anything like that in my travels or recent searching. Closest thing I've come up with is the spots for fret boards on gutairs (very thin though). Anyone have an idea where to get an actual...

    Belt progression

    36-80 depending on size of knife, 180, 320, 600 then hand sand 600G to get the scratch pattern i like. Unless I'm making Damascus then up to 800. Rougher stuff I Forge 180-240 and then Surface conditioning belt. PS I do a lot of my sanding on a disk grinder to help flatten grind.
