Thanks, if we talked more. I was gonna show em off on the zoom call last night. But i do keep the black scales on the knives, gives character, and you can see the hammer marks that are made.


Thanks Kick

Wellthese 4 are spoken for, 2 are sold, 1 is a gift. 1 i was gonna keep for myself,  but can part if the price or a trade was good enough. But within this slinging family.  I can always do a trade for a knife for something( slings, bows) i am not sure if i can get around customs to ship international.  Usually these knives i can sell for $150 to $200 each.

Cool knives. Forge isn't something I've ever thought about, but it looks like a cool hobby.

Thanks,, its such a fascinating hobby, even helps on being an  anger, and frustration outlet. Grin  In the US,  its making a comeback in popularity,  due to a mainstream TV show that is a knife making competition.  Its been going for almost 5 years i believe.

I loved forging when I was in highschool. I made a half a dozen swords and a couple dozen knives or so. Most weren't very good, but they were really fun to make. I never got into using different types of steels or forge welding though. I wish I had. I still have all of my forging stuff, just no where to do it that is quiet, or wouldn't set everything on fire.  I forge welded 2 pieces of mild steel together to see if it would work, and that is the only forge welding I ever successfully did.

Here are the finished products of the metal i was forging. These are Hudson Bay style knives. That mountain men towards the Rocky mountains, was most popular style. These are 12 inchs long.  7inch blade, 5 inch handle. Made out of old leaf springs that were found on my property in the woods. Lol. The light wood is Cherrywood. Dark wood is Walnut. 
( which was one of the more popular woods they used. ) i just used natural stain, as i like to make the grain out of the wood POP. last one is dyed leather, with hemp wrapped around it. These are very thick, i  filed in some jimping, which are littles marks on the spine of the blade right before the handle, it acts as you press your thumb on it, as extra grip on the knife. The sheath are dyed,  and made in the style of scout carry on your belt. Its 5 to 7 oz veg tanned leather. With Resolone as a protectant and waterproofing. 2 were supposed to be sold, but i think they might fall through. So after Christmas,  they might be available.  1 is a gift.


I apologize for the butt pic, but that is called scout carry
