    Deals for 10/23--Pix, KLVUK with razer sharp edge and huge savings

    Got my blade in. The black really doesn't look that bad in person. Actually I like it. In the pics on the original post it looked kind of like paint but just forging in person so I will probably just let it wear with use. It's hard to tell in the pics but the handle is a lot bigger than the HI's...

    Deals for 10/23--Pix, KLVUK with razer sharp edge and huge savings

    Thanks for advice about vinegar. Pretty sure I'll remove the black but we'll see when it gets here.

    Deals for 10/23--Pix, KLVUK with razer sharp edge and huge savings

    Is the black coating just from the forging process or some sort of coating?

    Offering For Sale Question

    It’s been a while since I’ve been to the forums or posted so I have a question that I would like to ask. I have an unused Rinaldi Calabria axe/tomahawk and a Craig Barr tomahawk head that I wanted to try and sell. I thought this group might be interested but are we allowed to offer them here or...

    Alternative Tomahawk Head Mounting

    Would it cause any issues to mount my tomahawk head similar to a regular axe with a wedge? I know the advantages of having the head to be removable but to be able to fit through the eye the handle has to be too thin and I really don’t want to wrap it. If I mount it like an axe, I have more...

    The 12" Ang Khola as a General Purpose camp knife. . .

    I love my 12" AK's. The HI Khuks for whatever reason seem to cut much better and this "little" 12" chops better than most of my big blades. I worked on the convex edge and it does great on slicing too. I could actually get these paper thin with no problem. Some testing I did a while back...

    Outdoor Hiking Goodie Bag

    Ok, it didn't go quite like I envisioned. Although we were around some pretty raw wilderness we actually stayed on the far side of an established campground. This was my first time to camp in this type of venue but I didn't want to get to far out since I wasn't sure how all of the boys would...

    Outdoor Hiking Goodie Bag

    Been thinking about it and even though it's not really part of a "survival" kit, I was thinking getting each one of those disposable cameras might be cool. Have kind of a contest of who gets the neatest picture. It will get them to slow down and look at nature more and maybe develop a love for...

    Outdoor Hiking Goodie Bag

    I'm taking the son and a few friends out camping and hiking this weekend for his birthday and I'm thinking about putting a little outdoor goodie bag together for them and was looking for suggestions. I was thinking about getting some fanny packs and putting some survival items in it. I was...

    Mega Chopper Throwdown from Khuks to Parangs to Machetes to Tomahawks

    For me for just light local camping and hiking it's going to be the 12" AK. I've always liked my Khuks but thought they weren't very good for general cutting like making feather sticks. I always attributed it to the angle. During this testing though I put a convex edge on it and found that was...

    Knife Steel for Choppers

    Does anyone have recomendations for somewhere that I could find steel for making some big choppers. I need like flat plate steel not steel for forging. I've found some steel but it's all like 2" wide. With the size and curves that I would like to try I need something bigger. I just need a basic...

    Mega Chopper Throwdown from Khuks to Parangs to Machetes to Tomahawks

    This is something that I was playing around with in between chopping stuff up. Supposed to end up as a spoon.

    Mega Chopper Throwdown from Khuks to Parangs to Machetes to Tomahawks

    I recently had one of my trees split in half in a storm and had quite a few limbs and shrubs to clean up so I decided this was my chance to compare and get some practical experience with all of the choppers that I have. This is going to have to be done in stages and might be picture intensive so...

    Khukuri Grip

    Thanks guys. I just thought would compare notes. I recently had a tree blow down in my yard and trimmed some big limbs and am doing kind of a major comparison chopping test between my HI Khuks, Tora Khuks, Parangs, Condor Golok, Tomahawks, etc. I hope to post some pics and info soon. The one...

    Mod'ing The CS Trail Hawk

    I have kind of a stupid question about modifying the CS Hawks. I've taken the coating off of a couple but how do you go about really smoothing and polishing the finish? Do you just use belt grinders, or would you use one of those wheel grinders, or maybe a round sanding pad? I know it's a...

    Beginner Khukuri or Parang Steel Type

    I am looking for some advice for a beginner. I would like to try my hand at making knives. What I really want to make is Khukuri or Parangs. What would be the best steel for me to start with and how would I buy it or where would I get it from? Would the steel have to be heat treated or can you...
