    Speed question?

    Yes. Easily. But it while it would be to my standards it would be a type of knife I really have no desire to make any more. Say something like this but using A2 and removable scales.

    Why do you make knives? Poll

    The women. They used to at best ignore me, now flocks of them gather round and I have to beat them away with a stick.

    If nothing else it's helping you weed out people who really aren't serious about knife making. Shop time is my most precious commodity. I don't have any to waste on people who don't really want to learn what I have to teach.

    I made a few knives in my life prior to Forged in Fire, starting after I read an Field and Stream article on how to make a knife from a file when I was 14. Over the last decade I'd been waffling between investing money into a shop set up for gunsmithing or knife making. Because I've worked in...

    Varnish/oil Finishing On Scales

    I like True Oil for a glossy finish. I like using combinations of leather dye to get specific effects, especially with maple. It's hard to capture in still images, so I'm trying a gif here: Edit to add: I guess the gif kills some resolution, but the key thing I'm trying to show is that with...

    What power tool is used ...

    I don't know if this is kosher so if not, I apologize, but I laser cut a number of broach blanks after guys saw mine and asked me to make more. They're O1 and need to be sharpened, hardened and put into a handle, but they're inexpensive, $25 for a set (large and small). Directions on how to...

    What power tool is used ...

    Once upon a time I lamented the lack of 3/16" mortise chisel/bits thinking they would be the ultimate hidden tang hole maker. They stop at 1/4". I nearly made one myself. Then I discovered pull broaches. Now I drill 1 hole through the handle material near the center of where I want the tang...

    CNC WIP - small flipper.

    G17- that was referring to how you got "out of the right plane" and were going to drill 3" into the table or whatever. G17 is XY plane, G18 XZ, G19 YZ. Or did you mean the wrong work offset? To see the conversational stuff (which is really just macros) it's Edit -> Program Conversational (2x)...

    CNC WIP - small flipper.

    I've had good luck drilling out broken taps with straight flute carbide drills that are roughly the flute diameter of the tap. How did you get out of G17? MasterCAM issue? Typo? Just curious as that's not something I hear happening often unless you're using right angle heads, etc. I'm...
