    with all the Kepharts i have been doing and with the up coming Ohio Classic Knife Show

    i decided i needed to change it up a bit for my sanity :unintroduced:

    so i started off with a bar of 1X 1 1/2 W2

    [​IMG]

    (yes that is a subliminal message)

    marked a center line

    [​IMG]

    marked the ends of the slot

    [​IMG]


    drilled holes for the slot
    [​IMG]

    milled a 1/4 inch slot for the drift

    [​IMG]

    forged the spike and bit first

    [​IMG]

    then i drifted the hole, yes i know its a fugly forging but its my first one

    [​IMG]

    after grinding away all that wasent hawk

    [​IMG]

    im happy every thing is centered

    This is badass, definitely looking forward to seeing it finished! If it was mine all I'd want done is a sharpened beard to really make this battle worthy :thumbsup:

    welllllll today i had a couple of pics opening up the drift a little more but the phone went in the rain barrel. smart phones dont like water, i suspect that cats and smart phones have a lot in common

    but i ordered the best curly maple handle that dunlap woodcraft had to offer. i even had a text message from them with a pic of the handle but that too went in the drink.

    the day wasent a total loss.

    yeah on second thought it was

    ok the NSA must really want the pics because the phone just turned on all by itself

    here are the pics

    i got the handle on the left

    [​IMG]

    i needed to open up the eye just a little bit and the bet way i could think of was to get a piece of heavy wall pipe and drift it too
    [​IMG]

    it needed about another inch deeper

    [​IMG]

    first the pipe

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and this is where the phone went for a swim

    Lon that curly is begging for acid finish..... just my 2 cents. I got the recipe if you need it. :manganr:

    Here's what it looks like with a little mahogany (reddish brown) transtint dye after the acid turns it black....
