    That is quite the endorsement. I'm going to have to pause buying -moooore kniiives- and go pick up the 1x30 and an angle grinder. Mr. Sun, please return and heat up the smithy....

    Okie dokie. Thanks for this post, it motivated me to get out there today during naptime.
    I bought a 3/16 cobalt drill bit and drill chuck and figured out that my drill press IS in working order!
    I had holes marked on my tang area but decided to just wing it instead.
    I drilled a pilot hole first and then knocked in the 3/16. It was fun drilling metal and it made some nice spindles.
    I then pulled up a scrap piece of walnut board from the barn and scribed out the handle scales on it.
    I took that to the bandsaw and cut out some rough blanks.
    Marking and drilling holes was a PROCESS, I can't wait to learn better methods because it was PITA but I think it will all fit together.
    So now the real fun!
    I'm going to do the final finishing before HEAT TREAT
    and then shape the handles
    test-fit the handles and dry assemble everything
    epoxy
    sharpen

    let's see how it goes! I am excited about the heat treat, I haven't gotten to use my new(est) forge yet...
