    My friend's wife does a lot of metal detector exploring, and came across these. The one on top looks like either a New England or a Yankee (found in northeast CT), I don't have the experience to distinguish. Any guesses what the thing on the bottom is? Is it just some sort of wedge? There's no...

    There appears to be some markings just barely visible under the collapsed poll in the picture above, but I can't make it out, and the letter "L" on the opposite side.

    Why must they do this...

    Beyond my abilities, and I've yet to find a local forge to reshape the eye. Then I might have a go of working on the rest.

    Knife kit - micarta question

    I guess I will try the belt sander very carefully and see how it goes. If I'm not comfortable, I go back to the aforementioned elbow grease. Is an N95 mask sufficient for working with micarta?

    Knife kit - micarta question

    I got this kit for Christmas, and I can't really call it a knife making kit, more of a putting a knife together kit. That said, it is my first foray into anything like this. My question has to do with the micarta handle. I have read a number of threads here about what to use to cut and trim, but...

    The Mal Paso Seax - Fallbrook Forge

    My first custom knife, and Tyler at Fallbrook Forge knocked it out of the park with this custom seax he made/named for me. 3/16" thick, 7-3/4" OAL, 3-1/8" sharpened edge. Terotuf handles, which I had never heard of, but was a great recommendation. Perfect for IWB carry and my small hands. I...

    Gifted a Duoglide, best way to get into useful shape?

    I was gifted this Dexter Russell Duoglide. It is a factory blem from what I understand, never used, never sharpened. It appears to have some sort of burr all along the blade (hard to tell from the phone picture). What is the best way to get this into useful condition?

    New axe stand/rack

    50*F today, so I got to work outside. Finally built a stand/rack for my axes, which were hanging form rafters, sitting on boxes, etc. Pretty inexpensive with 2x4 and 2x3. Most expensive thing were the 8" bolts, but I like things solid.

    The Outlaw Josey Wales is not only my favorite Western, it is my favorite movie. I even own an original of the book it was based on, Gone To Texas (movie is very true to the book). Favorite quote - Josey Wales - When I get to likin' someone, they ain't around long. Lone Watie - I notice when...
