      I actually can't take the credit for that, the stag was donated by Richard J.

      No relation...LOL!

          I only go up to about 400 grit before etching wrought iron, then I etch it for several 1 hr. cycles.

            Milling out the damascus throat-


            Drilling out the Sambar stag for the tang-


            A fair amount of tang for the handle-


            Securing the throat to the handle... with a black spacer-


            Roughing out the throat-


            Cutting in the "Stag Grooves"-


            Finished throat with things lined up from the side-


            and the top-


            Getting a coating of clear nail polish in prep for etching the throat-

              Etched throat with the stag smoothed out-








              Next is just drilling for the pin, setting her and then sealing everything up. Should have her done just in time to show the kids at X-mas!

                Ok, these are the last of the photos from me. The next step is up to John's creativity and for Coop to do the final "Wow Factor".

                Pien'ed 3/16" carbon steel pin, both sides...




                Sealing the Stag in a boiled linseed oil mix...


                Etching the pin heads...


                I can't wait to see what you've got planned John!!!

                Thanks again everyone,

                    What is your mix for sealing the stag? Is it 50/50 oil and shellac?

                      I go with about 70% boiled linseed oil, 20% teak oil and 10% acetone.
