    Handles and bolster questions

    Scott, Is this fresh cut, dried, or what? It is a hard wood and is best if stabilized. Most is light in color and fairly plain, but not all. This is part of a stump that the tree had dyed a year or 2 before I got it. Sometime next year I’ll cut it into blocks and stabilize them. One...

    Can I use this Steel for knives ?

    Craig, I have no idea about these blades. So what I do when I don’t know about a find is, Can it be cut with a file? If yes it goes into the penny pile. If no I’ll grind a bevel and do a 10xx heat treat then to the anvil and a hammer and break it to look at the grain. If I like what I’m seeing...

    Why so Many Hidden Tangs

    I believe it’s a matter of preference for whatever reason you want. I forge an a little stock removal but I personally like a hidden tang in most designs. But then again some designs require a full tang to look right. Ask 4 knife makers a question and get 10 different answers:les: Todd

    First stock removal knife

    Well after about six months and about that many sacrificed blades. I came up with this little knife that will really work. It started as a 1/8” thick saw blade, that I wasn’t sure what the metal was, so I cut out a blank, ground it, heat treated and full quenched in oil, then broke it to have...

    Coffin Box bowie FINISHED

    Doug, I like it. With cooper without copper, in the front of the guard, behind the guard, it looks good. Like the way the false edge just runs off before the point. Good choice of materials. The only thing that I can see is the ricasso is a little too tall, for my taste. But I still like...

    Tom A way to figure the smallest single piece that can be fed through safely is to measure center-to-center between the in-feed roller and out-feed roller then add one inch. Example mine is 11” center-to-center so the smallest that I can run through this one is a 12” single piece. Todd
