Enjoying the heat here in the Deep South.  Makes for nice time forging and knife making.  Here's some recent projects.  First up, a cable Damascus hunter forged from 3 pieces of 1" crane cable with a chitum burl and stag handle.

Next up is a Kabar inspired Black Diamond Bowie.  The handle isn't leather, but alternating stacked brown paper and canvas micarta.  The pommel is the original stamped tang from the file.

This one is a vintage Heller diamond cut file with a chitum burl handle.

And finally a 4 bar, Turkish twist Bowie with stabilized Buckeye Burl handle.

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."
