So far i have shaped one bolster plus done the file work down the tang. reason only one is done is cos i wanted to do the file work
My baby vice can rotate 360 degrees, and is perfect for what i need. i toped it up to stop it scratching everything
my files, one is now dead unfortunately it snapped and just missed my head...
i did quite a bit more work after these were taken. literally a hell of a lot ones fully shaped just needs cleaning up.
the blade is Aus8 steel heat treated to 59rc
got cocobolo scales and black fibre spacing material.
thats the summary of whats been done so far,
yes i know you can see my legs in the pictures, i was still in my shorts when i did the filework this morningskippydm wrote:My fingers are soooo sore its crazy, i got virtually all the filework done (just a tiny little bit that i am going to do once the bolster is shaped)
theres a few pictures of it, i did a little more shaping after the pictures were taken... btw hope you like them cos it was Fecking hard to take any sort of decent photo
what i would say is the best picture I could get 8)
