    YCC, Any tips on an inlayed gator hide sheath? I'll be using cowhide for durability but would like to inlay some gatorhide?

    I have a 3/4" contact wheel attachment on my grinder that I used on a damascus knife and it worked great. The spine was close to 3/16" thick. I don't think I would try it on a 1/8" thick blade though.

    Pancho, you use the contact wheel for doing file work? I'm trying to make a rig for my 1/2" wheel to cut fullers in a blade but it isnt working yet. Have you tried to cut fullers yet? If so, how?

    What is a fuller? Is it the finger choil? I just mark the spine and touch the belt at a 45 degree angle. The use the tri angle file for the sharp points in the vine. The go back to the grinder and slowly round off the edges. I will post pics of the one I did with my grinder. I also have a variu speed control on my grinder so it helps with control.

    A fuller is another name for a blood groove. I've never thought to use the grinder for file work...I will have to try this.

    went to the blacksmith show this weekend and wanted to share the pics with you guys. To my knowledge photobucket is safe again so rather than post all those pics here, I'll just link you guys to my album. I asked a lot of questions so if you guys have any questions, MAYBE I can answer them. I don't know much about steels or smithing, etc. so I probably didn't ask the right questions, but I tried lol.
