I'm jealous of that anvil.
There were about 12 of those in the workshop iirc
That's a cool present, knoefz. And good job. I haven't figured out the forging thing yet.
Another puukko completed. 105mm blade, black alder burl handle, nickel silver bolsters and cocobolo spacers.
Wow, that is nice hawkhead!
Dude... That's gorgeous. Love the grooves. How did you do them? Groovy!
Thanks tman038 and daizee. I cut them with a small round needle file the polished to 800 grit satin finish. Nickel silver is easy to work by hand.
some may remember this mistake when I got in a hurry:
finished up the back half finally and got it sent to a new home this week:
and yes, that's a dub-sized handle
Nice work man.
Nice work brudda. You mean a 1066vik sized handle.
here's the other half of that disaster - finished it this afternoon.
6 1/4" blade, 4 1/4" handle
Dude, great job!
Very nice man. Looks like it's gotta a 1066vik sized handle.
actually, the handle is a little short for me -- but the balance is only 5/16" in front of the handle, so it's pretty lively.
This seems like the appriate thread for this.
These are minor compared to what a lot of you guys do, but, I have three projects I’m concurrently working on:
1. My wife got me a Man Crate’s kitchen knife making kit back in January. I’ve added the micarta scales to it and still have to shape them.
2. I have a Condor Kephart blank that I’m adding stabilized wood scales to.
3. I have an Enzo Trapper blank in Elmax that I’m adding micarta scales to.
Progress is slow!
Tomorrow after work
As I said, progress is being made very slowly. After shaping most of the kitchen knife handle by hand, I’ve come to the conclusion that I will be getting a sander. Lol
even a HF 1x30 is better than none.
Looking good, GeofS. The Enzo Trapper has long been one of my favorite profiles.
I’m with 1066vik on the HF 1x30 is better than nothing. That was my first and I made a bunch of knifes on it. I’ve upgraded a couple times but still use the 1x30 on occasion and it’s still going strong. It was less than $40.
Nice save on your two halves, 1066vik!
