Re: 2019 Customs and WIP Stuff

This type of damascus is made by mike norris, check out http://mikenorrisdamascus.com/ You can look up the process for making ladder damascus, that is the wavy outermost pattern. The ladder is over a straight pattern i believe is stacked and then cut and re welded just like a mosaic damascus. In the...

Re: Heat Treatment

for the most consistent temps molten salt is used. There is also fluidized sand bed...not that you cant get consistent results from air furnace. In the end it is about performance of the knife and Id expect a retailer like CKTG to focus on that. One of the wonderful things to happen recently in the ...

Re: Moribashi Pointers

Ahh I see, that makes a lot of sense then. The steel will hold up to being in the flame / hot oil ... my re handle is going to be from that cast honeycomb material. It should look cool as little mini octagon shapes but may need a steel rod through the entire length as the stuff wont be strong enough...

Re: Looking for a Handle / Handle Craftsman

its a good candidate to finish the handle slabs just proud of the bolsters...you see that alot on many fine knives especially with more fragile / expensive materials. Look up pictures of J Doyle knives or Don Hanson and you will see what I mean. If I had my way with that knife I would create the sam...

Re: 2019 Customs and WIP Stuff

Looking good! That stacked bolster and frame handle is pretty cool and looks unique. I also dig the radiused plunge line on that practice knife (same as the earlier post, right?)... What kind of backing are you using to sand up in there tho? Of course i forgot to take pics of this knife before I sh...

Re: Hunting knife needed

Well the only practical skinning experience I have is on humans ( dont ask), so I got some expertise from someone I know whose expertise I trust. What I came away with was that for deer a 3.7 inch blade was ideal and 4" was ideal for any kind of game. Over 5" he considers in the way. Of course thes...

Re: What do you think about this grind?

A hammered billet of steel like that is not going to be perfectly rectangular so even if the bevels are evenly ground it wont look that way.
