    What EDC are you carrying today?

    Thread Starter: avoidspam

    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....:) Sam

    Grinder plans

    Thread Starter: bashup

    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...

    Spyderco Urban BB EDITION

    Thread Starter: snoopdong

    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. In late 2015 things started shifting...

    Nordic puukko? horn and fur sheath with careving

    Thread Starter: TAHAWK

    That would be "carving." :O Got this one recently. The seller had no information about its source. The blade, as you see, has a slight clip and a swedge. The primary bevel seems narrow for a Finnish puukko. Examples of sheaths of bone or antler combined with leather are variously called,...

    Leuku or not?

    Thread Starter: Abyrvalg

    Don't really know if this knife can be called leuku... )) But anyways, this is collaborative project with Nova Scotian blade smith Rick Marchand, who forged this awesome blade. Steel is 52100 high carbon steel, addition of 1.5% chromium makes it less prone to rust than most of carbon steels...

    Small forges

    Thread Starter: timgunn1962

    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...

    San Antonio Bowie in 0-1 and Sambar stag

    Thread Starter: white 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...
