hi Lin, as always clean exceptional work, thats meant to be used.
Knives that a crotchety, reclusive, anti-social knifemaker can even appreciate.

Lin, I have a high speed hookup now and can get the pics that everyone has been seeing for awhile.
Just wanted to add my thanks a bit late for all your time on this one.
Thanks a bunch for showing this tutorial. RS

Amazing work and great tutorial, thanks.

Are there any artists that give more freely of their secrets and such than bladesmiths/knife makers?

Lin, Nice job, liquid alluminium works to. You must not heat treat the tang or do you draw it back? Good Hunting Knifemaker

knifemaker,

Liquid aluminum works for what? You probably mean where the guard attaches to the blade to seal it. I have not used that product yet. If you have any info on it, I'd be interested in seeing it. You're right, I dont harden the tang, or else I draw it back before I put the handle on. Thanks, Lin

Now THAT is One Beautiful Knife my Friend!! [thumbsup] I can Only Asspire to Become 1/2 as good as Y'all!! [Roll Eyes]
Question: Is Liquid Aluminum akin to J-B Weld?? Please Pardon My Ignorance, as this is a Brandly New Interest of Mine, so I am a Pea-Green Rookie!! [dunno]
