I was hoping to find some alternatives in the U.K.
Here's a bit more detail from the encyclopedia:
by 'shroud' do you mean like a little tent?
and to double check; heat oven to 1825 and hold for an hour. Turn off, put knife in with shroud, turn back on to 1725 and soak for 30-40 minutes. Turn off, remove knife, plate quench, remove foil after a few minutes(?) and then put in freezer for an hour. Temper twice at 475 for an hour each
do I got it straight?
Yup. It sounds complicated but there's nothing to it.
And obviously, you want to wear some gloves and use tongs or pliers to put the work in and out. The radiant heat coming out of that oven when the door is open is legit.
I have bought from these folk and they are good and reliable. UK based
Nathan, I am way down towards the bottom of the pre-order list for the K18 (at least I got in). Using your best guess when will the last of the pre-orders ship?
Nathan what do you recommend to preserve ebonite scales?
I'm afraid to make estimates because I keep getting set back. Hopefully by the end of summer.
Don't store it in direct sunlight and since it is a natural rubber product to keep oil off of it.
There are ebonite pens and wind instruments that are 100 years old and doing fine
Thank you sir.
Nathan, I've been on a bushcraft and axe trip lately (all your fault BTW, as all my compulsive expenditure in things I don't really need but absolutely want is ALWAYS your fault) so with that caveat out of the way:
IIRC there were some discussions in the past about some dedicated bushcraft CPK knife but knowing your preferences for not wanting to go below a certain stock thickness, seems that you never warmed up too much to the idea. My Q is not really a Q but just to resurrect the idea that something thinner in the exact mold of the ultra sexy OGFK with the pry bar at the end is not too daft an idea. Think on it as you charm Jo into accepting that CPK-Axe project
ETA: another thing which didn't exactly titillate was the Scandi grind thingie.
Edit: ...whoops, wrong thread....
Nathan, I have a question for you;
you've seen a lot of guy's hammers, and I was wondering if you'd rate mine?
#notnathan but dontcha need a handle?
If you had a hammer (handle)
You could hammer in the morning... In the evenin'... And all over the land.
(Never understood that song)
Would you please give us a glimpse of this fabled blade?
and a glimpse of the Kephart please!
It does not appear that your hammer is well hung.
