Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) SamLast Post By: ceri Today, 07:38 PMbashup
Here's the first of the plans for the grinder I built and took to Jack's hammerin. It's just a prototype but it seemed to work fine. I'll do a full build type thread in due course for anyone who's interested... Here's the tracking setup I used And an alternative which is simpler to...Last Post By: Payman Today, 05:52 PMsnoopdong
Spyderco Urban BB EDITION The topic of a forum knife has been a long running matter on British Blades, and as a member of only a few years something that appeared to have shifted form over the years but with one constant: it was going to be a Spyderco.

Once again I have been messing about with forges. Some years ago, I had put together a couple of coffee-can-style forges and took them to Jack's hammerin to see if they'd work. They basically comprised a length of 6” pipe with an end welded on, a lining of double wrapped 25mm/1” ceramic fibre...Last Post By: timgunn1962 Today, 07:57 PMwhite tiger
Hello gents This style of Bowie is proving really popular I'm very pleased to say. The blade is 0-1 tool steel, 10" long, 1 9/16" wide, just shy of 1/4" thick at the ricsso and 15" long from butt to tip. The carbon steel hand guard has had the tips forged down to reduce their thickness and give...Last Post By: mick spain Today, 06:16 PM
