    That's a cool present, knoefz. And good job. I haven't figured out the forging thing yet.

    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.

    and yes, that's a dub-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! :rolleyes:

    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!
