"The Montana Bladesmith"
Now that Tim has unwrapped them, this is what I've spent my shop time on since about August. This stupid Lupus and Lung Disease never lets me know when I can work....but it sure puts me down on zero notice. Anyway, hopefully I can pry them away from Tim long enough to photo them all individually..... but for now, here's a pic Tim took of the "Camping Set" I made for him. Camp Knife of 1084, Hatchet of 52100, and an Axe with a body of 4140, with a 1080 "bit" forge welding in. The Knife and Hatchet have a handle material that Tracy sells called "Ultrex".... G10/rubber layers. You have to get used to working with it....but it makes for a super "grippy" handle....both dry and wet. I stenciled flames on each with black Gun-Kote, then went over that with Satin Clear. I'm sure they'll get scuffed and scratched over time....but hey, that's what I make em for.
