What I did this Sunday

Rusty McDonald

KNIFE MAKER
Went to someone's house and he showed me how to make the ladder pattern. Showed me a lot I just hope I can remember half of it. Mike Ruth makes some great looking Damascus! I got some to make a couple of Slipjoints out of and here is one of the blades I have started.

nice that you were able to keep a tight pattern that will go good on a folder blade. Very hard to do sometimes and especially on ladder.

Mr Ruth is very good at pattern welding. He showed me some tricks I will have to try when I get a set up for it. I owe him big time.

That looks sweet Rusty! Please let us see the knife when it's complete. If I wasn't hoarding the little bit of ivory I have, I'd insist on getting some to you. But I'm sitting on it, sorry. Some day I might make a knife worthy of it. :D

That's beautiful damascus.
