Only 79% more effort to go, then.

Heck, got me "beat". If it ain't glowing red and I can't hit it with a hammer I can't do much more than grind away everything but the mysterious hidden lumpy spoon shape!

If you give me a roaring forge and a hammer to swing I can make round things flat, flat things flatter and straight things crooked.


Once the torrential downpour stops I'll post a picture of my $2 Hi-Rail anvil that has better rebound than my 300 lb Fisher.

It was mounted to the Hi-Rail via the lower ball.




Weird eh?

If you put that piece of rail on a heavier/sturdier base you'll get better energy transfer. Mine goes on a red oak trunk section.

You could build the base out of treated lumber glued and screwed together for a better anvil stand like this guy.

I'll probably drop in on a log and leave it outside and save a good anvil from getting beat on by the weather.

Those bars that it is sitting on are 1" diameter steel. I sparked them and I think they are high carbon. I wonder if they are cut down torsion bars from some piece of railway gear?

The results of this evenings labors:



5/32" 1084 from Aldo, approx 4.5" blade length and an OAL of 9".
Grind is asymmetrical, right handed full flat.

Time got away from me so I'll have to heat treat it tomorrow.

I like that Warfinn style blade.

I just got the rough outline of my chosen design on steel, and I think I just had a knifegasm.

The Mrs. Is commissioning one as well.

Knife design is hard for me.

Easy for JShirley apparently.

These patterns are 95% JShirley designs with only a couple very minor tweaks from me.

I spend days thinking about stuff like this.

John just draws a knife.

I'm excited to grind these!


Expect some gonzo jimping.





With the brilliant Alan Folts designed, FOLTS minimalist by CRKT.

In fairness, I'm a horrible artist. It's a credit to him that Sam understood what I *meant* to draw.

That is cool looking! But IMHO the notch in the butt would drive me nuts in actual usage. If you had the scales in that shape and then the tang extended beyond the scales to become a rounded lanyard ring, that would be useful and comfortable.

Like this:

Yep.

Like I said, I'm a horrible artist. The knife on the right looks almost exactly right (drew it with a certain forum member in mind- not my style, so to speak)- except for the pommel. Good eye.

That isn't a notch, those are twin skullz chrushorz spikez.

Actually, what happened was when I drew the pattern, I blew it up by about 10-15% and made the tang disproportional in length.
When I chopped it off the cut went through the lanyard hole.

I chopped the second pattern down even further I shaped it the same way for aesthetic consistency.

JShirley asked me what I was going to call the knife construction apparatus.

The obvious answer is:

Death Skull Fornicating Tactical Murder Blades for Elite Operators:
Xtreme knivez for Xtreme dooodz.
