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

    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,
    J.

    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.
