    What's going on in your shop?

    A friend of mine gave me the first piece of Demascus he made. Real low layer count and small. I decided to put a few twists in it so I squared it up, then twisted it a few times for the heck of it. Made a boneing knife with the blank. Did a quick Ferric bath just to see pattern. Wish it had more...

    I have to get creative on this one.

    Make the wood as wide as you want then inlay the Titanium into the wood. This is what I ment. Don't know if you can do it with the Titanium? I also saw a cool video how to anodized Titanium also. That would be a cool affect!

    I have to get creative on this one.

    What about inlays? Some one on here has done wood with wood inlays. I think it was Gene Kimmi?? You could still use the screw on fasteners and predrilled holes and get the added width you need.

    Any shipping problems?

    USPS as much as I hate saying it is pretty bad. Like others on this thread have said its hit or miss with them! I've had things I've ordered show up in 2 days (or early) and I've had stuff not show for 2 weeks that was suppose to be there in a few days. Half the time the tracking isn't even...

    Forged In Fire New show, Beat the Judges

    As far as the "Initial" design i ment the first knife the 4 contestants have to make prior to moving on. You pretty much addressed that with "They also do some testing..." comment. I know that this show is not a GREAT representation of most of the knife makers skills but I like to watch it when...

    Heat Treating Oven

    I was reading a post asking some questions about this subject. I didn't want to hi-jack the post but had some questions too. Why does everyone want the TAP control vs the Cheapie 3 button? When you heat treat do you put knife blanks in as oven is heating or after its heated? When doing "Stepped"...

    Heat Treat Ovens, Looking for Input

    I think the new Paragons come with electronic relays already installed? That was a plus for me when doing research. I never got oven because I was layed off.

    What's going on in your shop?

    No legs yet. I planned on trying a basic apron first. Asked my local forging pals to help me on design. I like simple and this is what I came up with. 8" at top, bottom 24", 16" from top to transition then 18" to bottom, 34" top to bottom. Pocket is 4" wide x 5" long, enough for Sharpie, pencil...

    What's going on in your shop?

    The reason I decided to make them was something similar started at $249.00!!! It had a few more pockets and Leather straps. I polled my local forging friends and all except 1 said they would prefer the Nylon straps to conserve weight. They also wanted no pockets except the upper one for a...

    What's going on in your shop?

    Not a knife but making some Leather shop/forging aprons! 6-7 ounce utility grade Leather. Nice distressed look to it! Only one pocket up hi so you don't get a pocket full of scale into it. Have some Olive Green web strapping for the harness, fiberglass reinforced hardware, to keep weight down...
