Thanks guys. I am working out the kinks. For another few in the works and one mishap to correct. I could not find the guard on another knife and saw it hanging in the ferric after it was there for about 20 hours! All that work just destroyed.

Thoroughly impressive work! Are you comfortable in sharing how you assembled the tang and butt end of the knife. What material is that, a piece of damascus?

No secrets here. The tang does not go all the way through. It goes about 3/4 into the stag. I am going to put a pin in it more than likely. The butt is just carved out and another piece of Damascus inserted in there. I do not like pith showing. I was trying to showcase as much of the stag as I could.

Thanks, I appreciate seeing your work. So, how do you hold the horn & knife to drill a pin hole? Is the butt end held in with epoxy separately from the tang?

Photos?
The stag was filled with epoxy, very little in this case, and then it all sets up. Then I will create some fixture to get it on the drill press level so the hole lines up on both sides. I usually place the ricasso on a block so I know it is level. Then I will stack something under the other side to keep it level. The butt piece is epoxied separately. I can get a pic
