    Customer Order - Buffalo Hunter remake

    Here's a piece that I've recently finished. The customer requested that I make a similar knife to a Buffalo Hunter that his brother had gotten from their father. He had a photo and sent it to me with dimensions of what he wanted. I recreated it with a 1095hc steel and brass furnishings with...

    Too many orders...not enough play time...Experienced Opinions Please

    So I've come across the odd dilemma that I'm hoping to get some advice from some experienced people here. This may be more of a ramble session / trying to voice my thoughts as well. I'm one of the typical hobby knifemakers that has a normal daytime job and really like my job because it will...

    Damascus - Etch Help

    Hey Guys, I'm working on this new piece that is some steel I got from a guy in trade for services. The steel is a "Damascus" from Pakistan that he got somewhere but I have no clue what the actual steel is. This piece actually had a really ugly forge weld that didn't weld right in a hollow...

    Fresh off the Bench: Holiday Carving Set

    Last year someone asked me if I could make a carving set. As with just about everything in this industry, for me, I said that I haven't tried it yet, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Well, since then I've gotten 3 more orders. I'm definitely NOT a photographer. Good thing I can make a...

    Neck Knives - CPM-3v

    Here's a couple neck knives I made as presents for some female family members. The steel was actually extra from a plate I had left over from getting water jet cut for some other pieces. It was hard to see the steel go to waste so I pulled what I could and decided to play around a bit. These...

    Clear Epoxy for Embedding that can be polished

    Hello, I'm looking to try something new with a new piece I'm working on. I need a clear epoxy that will cure hard enough to be able to polish. I've tried a number of poly epoxies when making micarta but they tend to have an amber tint to them when cured. I've tried a couple types of bar top...
