    Looking for a source for Tek lok belt loops or similar

    neck knives

    knives look great. I like how the sheaths match the handle material. Where did you find that clear Kydex I have never seen that before.

    Good "practice" Steel

    To be honest I would just get some basic 10xx steel. You have already spent quite a bit on tool acquisition and from Aldo you can get a 4' bar for about $15 plus shipping. You can just buy steel that will last you a while so you don't have to bother finding more after you make one. If you are...

    Knife that nearly took my finger

    Hopefully I will be able to get most of the range of motion back but it is unlikely I'll get it all. Same story with the sensation because i completely severed the nerve its unlikely I'll ever get the same nerve density back. But I should be able to get it to a somewhat normal condition

    Knife that nearly took my finger

    The cut was pretty severe. I severed both of the tendons in the finger, the nerve and the artery. Just so it isn't too graphic I'll post it after stitching it up before the surgery to repair it. I'm very pleased with how this handle turned out and I'll definitely be using it again. The...

    Knife that nearly took my finger

    This was a fathers day gift for a friend whose girlfriend wanted to buy him one. The week before fathers day week end I had the knife finished but I needed to make the sheath, but before I did that I cut my right index finger with it. Here I am 3 and a half months later and it is finally...

    did I mess up??

    I do not do my own HT or pretend to know all that much about it so take thoughts with a grain of salt, but from what I have read I believe that you would have to heat the knife to a higher temperature to temper the blade more than it already is. Hope this helps

    Cut my finger, having surgery to repair damage tomorrow. requesting prayers

    That's what I ended up buying, I thought I would play it safe and get one bigger. I got the stitches out last week and everything looks to be healing well, though slowly. The doc said I should have most of the strength and some of the range of motion back in 3 months. hopefully I can get back to...

    Where to send Elmax for HT

    A friend of mine wants to make 2 knives and wants the best stainless he can get, so I showed him Elmax. I have no idea where would be best to send it or how much HT would cost approximately. Also, is Elmax a tricky steel to work with as a beginner and are there any warnings or advice about...

    Official Summer 2013 KnifeDogs Knife in the Hat Thread

    As much as it kills me to do this, I severely cut my right index finger Monday and will not likely be able to finish the knife. I'm going to have to ask to pull my name from this. I hope everyone has a great time with what they receive and I am looking forward to doing this next year.
