Great WIP ,J. Thanks for posting them
The Blade and Guard sure look great. Awesome crown Stag you Chose.
I actually can't take the credit for that, the stag was donated by Richard J.
Very cool , nice WIP too
1 question : what grit did you go up to on the guard before you etched it ?
9-11-01 We will Never Forget , So watch your backs , You Know Who You Are
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,
Going to be an outstanding collaboration, J.
