So I Cut My Blanks Out With Hacksaw Blades/ Shaped and Done the Grinds With Files and Sandpaper.And The Bear Of the Progect Was Working the Micarta With Just Files and Sandpaper.Also Got a Light Hamon On Both Blades . But I Finished them and Was Able to Get 4 Other Blanks Cut and One Ax Head Done Today Also
    1 is Handled In Black Denium and White Cotten Micarta and the other Is Done In Fiddle Back Maple.

    Awesome.

    That second blade shape is perfect, trace it.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    So you Like the Blade Shape ,It's a Perfect Size to I'll Scan It And Make a Templet And I'll Figure Out How to Send it to you In a PDA format .
    The Pattern is the Same Pretty Much for Bot Knives The Fiddle Back One Is Just a Full Under Belly Swoop And the Micarta One Has a Finger Choil In the Handle.

    Nice work there! I didn't realize how many knife related terms there are. It's like it's own language. Do I speak Knife? Only conversationally!

    wow, that's a lot of work for sure and they still look better than what I'll probably churn out WITH power tools.

    I just figured out how to assemble a belt sander, at least I think. Gonna sketch it out tomorrow. Just gotta figure out how to assemble the tracking wheel. This is all from scratch and a recovered electric motor from a jacuzzi.

    That is a great job considering that you didn't use power tools! You are good with your hands my brother!

    I actually enjoyed it more myself before I got the Grizzly. PM me if anyone wants a grizzly knife grinder.

    Skinner, I have my own knife designs.

    I really like the shape of that one.

    That certainly provides a good example for those of us who are power tool deficient. Thanks.
