New to the forum. I guess I'll share a little about myself. I've sold welding supplies since the '90's and several years ago accidentally stumbled into knife making. I got bit bad. It grew into a passion. Since I was self taught I've made just about every mistake in the books, and scribbled a few in too. I enjoy making knives to be used.
I soppose I'll start with a pic of my latest knife. This winter has killed me in as much as shop time. This one is forged from 2pc of 7/8 crane cable. The blade is 10" long with a total length of 15". Cable Damascus guard and pommel with stabilized Buckeye handle.
Rule #10; "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."
