    Default DOC Auction Knife Build WIP

    This thread is for all that are making a knife for the DOC auction build. Winter had a great idea with the concept, and an equally great idea for this thread. All that are making a knife for this project can post their progress here. This will not only be knives to raise a little money for a great cause, but can be used to help others that might be interested in knife making. It might "demystify" some of the process. The thread is stickied so that it is easy to be find. November is the time frame that we are shooting for to have all knives complete (I'd say early November if possible) that way they can be auctioned off and sent out in time for Christmas.

    So - if you're making one - and you are so inclined - post your progress here.

    i assume you're looking for something functional

    always wanted to try to " flintnap " a blade
    .

    This is the thread that got it going. http://www.wilderness-survival.net/f...at-do-you-want The only real thing that folks voted on was the style of blade. Drop point won the poll, but I don't think anybody would complain if you made something different. I'd like to see you knap a blade.

    It's a charity auction, so the more the merrier.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    OK - I need some input (is that cheating?). I've got a design that I like drawn out, and I just ordered some steel yesterday. Would members rather see rusty saw blade material or clean steel that I ordered for this?

    Care to elaborate? What kind of steel? DEFINITELY would like to see your drawings.

    I like the rusty old steel myself. It reminds me of me.

    those saw blades have character.

    I will after I profile the steel. Got a couple to finish before I start grinding.

    Like the shape, can't wait to see the finished product!

    Default Please forgive me if I missed the final "how's this gonna play out"

    I gather that all participating knife craftsmen are working off of the same parameters. Once they're all done (say Nov. 15) and we have e.g. 5 finished products what happens next?

    My understanding is that they will all be auctioned off for DOC. Not sure of the mechanics involved, but that's how I understand it.

    I enjoy what I'm doing, but I would like to be home more. I guess I'm still making up my mind. LOL

    Did you have to sell off your equipment, or can you start back up if building picks up?
