    Random photos from the Boise Knife Show

    Dang, I'm jealous! Looks like lots of fun indeed. Sorry to hear about your better half. Maybe the downtime was good though? So how did you do with your wood? We are, of course, waiting for those after show blow out specials! :tt2: :paypal::tt2:

    Rope Cutting competition -- what are the rules, best designs, steels, etc?

    From what I've seen, that tip about the ergonomic qualities of the handle is imperative. Fussing for one's grip while wailing and swinging away can't be good, and is more common than you might think. A lot of the challenges are like sprinting. You've got to go full bore until the job is done...

    2 for an elk hunter

    Wow, THANKS Smitty. That was great! Are all the welt layers full all the way down the blade? I pictured one or two were full and the additonal layers would be mostly at the top around the handle and taper out as they went down.

    2 for an elk hunter

    Thanks Smitty! That was a good explanation of your process. If understand you right, you.... cut four basic pieces of leather: the front and back of "each" sheath for the two knives (Or was it just three pieces as you might have used the front of the big sheath also for the back of the small...

    2 for an elk hunter

    Looking good! It must have taken a bit of figuring out how to get that double sheath to fit tight enough to hold the knives well, but loose enough to enable them to get in and out well. I'd sure love to hear more about your design and construction process on it if you'd be willing. Thanks, Phil

    Need more constructive solution input please... Hi Friends, While I appreciate all the posts on making thermite (and how "cool" it is) I'm more interested in the ones on how NOT too. More posts about shop layout, grinding and cutting procedures, dust filtration and spark arrestor setups...

    It's true there were many photo ops,, but I don't believe it occurred to a single one of us to snap photos. Sorry. From my perspective the main visuals of note were the many living tattoo billboard walking about the place. There was enough colored ink on flesh to paint the town I believe. Quite...

    Yup, forged a few blades, ate lots of good food, tried to side step as much twisted humor as possible, and visited with some great guys. THANKS George, you're quite the host! Sorry about skipping out on KP. Hey, I did pick up after your pack of dogs several times though...and that ain't no...

    Going to Auburn Maine?

    I've preregistered through the new ABS website store. I've covered about 2500 of the miles so far of the 5000 or so I have to do to get there from Hawaii. Stuffs come up with the fam in NH, but I think I'll be able to make it. That is, if I survive my 3rd annual working visit with Indian George...

    Dern it, I was hoping to sneak in under the radar. Geesh, I sure hope I can make it. IG you're a forge partying son-of-a-gun! Thanks for your ongoing hospitality. I should have a new Evenheat oven with me (via Tracy's store sent to my Mom and Pop's in NH.) I'm hoping some of you good folks will...

    Are fingerprint-less rubber gloves standard issue with that contraption? Does it come with one of these too?
