    Matchlock Axe/Pistol

    Spirograph, mazur birch small bowie

    I wanted to try to develop a spirograph pattern and this is the first attempt. I was looking for a patterned wood and have a bucket of this birch so I stabilized it with Cactus Juice. I like the pattern. The blade is 9" and the handle 4 3/4". 1095 and 15N20. Thanks for looking. Paul Spurgas

    FILE GUIDE and how to use it

    Double Trouble

    I posted a few pictures of my 40 caliber double barrel black powder knife pistol combo. Obvious inspiration is the work of Bruce Bump. Still minor tweeking to be done but it shoots,cuts and is so heavy could be a great club. Paul

    Guns, Cut N Shoots and other dual threat weapons

    Double Trouble Watching Bruce's inspirational WIP I decided to try my hand at a double barrel knife combo. It still needs loads of work and finishing. Today I took it out to test fire. It actually is pretty accurate at 20 feet. Those double 40 caliber barrels pack a punch. Although no misfires...
