You 're totally welcome Rudy. Hope you can use the stuff. I have some info on that 6150 somewhere. Bought it at Batson's Blade Symposium last year. When I find it I'll send it to you.

I definately can use it, or any steel and materials.
Not that I'm a pro but I have a young guy learning forging with me in a couple weeks. That 6150 and 1084 looks about right to start on instead of the 1/4" 5160 I have. Thanks again Patrick.

You're welcome Dwane. Thats Walla Walla Blue Mountain Elk antler. It should go good on a knife from New Mexico. I looked but couldnt find hardly any guard material. I just use allot of plain ol' 1018 for guards.

I hit the Jackpot!

Look at this great handle material from Rudy.

Thanks Rudy, I can really use this stuff.

Is this a great site or what?

Received MITH to day from "DonL" a nice package to make a super knife.

1 1/2" x 7" Alabama Damascus
Ironwood scales
Red liners
Copper pin stock
Lanyard tubing

Soon as I finish here the build begins, design first, a hunter?

Thanks Don, how'd you know, been wanting some Damascus, this will be my first knife with it.

Also received a nice Thank You letter (snail mail) from Cory Speh "SC Knives" aside from his on line "Thanks" for the material he received.

Received my package today from Robert Carpenter, got some Wood, looks like some kind of horn, some pin and thong hole stock.


Robert what is the silver stock? Looks like Stainless but seems light to me for stainless.

Thanks for the materials Robert.

hope you can use it down the road...
