    For my brother

    My brother got me a nice recurve bow so i made him a knife. Blade was hand filed from a piece of Alabama Damascus. The the guy at the knife show gave me a free piece to start with! Cool dude!

    Building nwg

    I got the plans from MKS and I am rounding up the steel that's needed. I have some 1 1/2" square bar that I was going to use for the tool arms but the plans specify 1 3/4" tube for this.

    I have trouble getting out the deeper grindmarks from my plunges. I like to tell myself that I just need to invest in a 2x72 and it will make plunges and bevels easier. Right now I use a 6" bench grinder, angle grinder, 6x6x36 belt/disc grinder, bandsaw, drillpress, dremel and lots and lots...

    knife #4 (first forged blade)

    This is knife #4 forged from a Crosby 9 1/2 ton shackle. I don't know what the make up is but it felt tough to move with my 4 lb hammer. For the first one I didn't want to use expensive steel. I used cypress for the handle. Homemade layered veneer and a red spacer. The first handle was junk...

    Hello from central Florida

    Hey y'all, I'd like to not be a stranger so I will say hi. So here is how the obsission started. Dad said, "I think I want to make knives"....and I said ok (on the inside I said yeah ok ;) this won't work).
