His process is bloody easy and works, giving the blade an excellent temper. I made two and they stay sharp very well. Then a few licks of the steel and back to razor Smiley

If your after brass rod for the rivets go into a plumbers and ask for a ball co*k valve shaft thing (brass rod that attachs the float to the valve in a stock drinking trough) is 8mm in diameter and is in some areas the only sorce of brass rod you can find that small Ideally it should be 6 but I used 8mm with good effect.

I saw this guy at a show about a month ago. He makes all sorts of things - axes, furnature, carvings etc.
Only had a few knives on show but they caught my eye. He talked to me about them for a good ten minutes and I almost bought one - the best quality knives I've ever come across. The 200 price tag put me off though.
I can vouch for the blade quality if this is the process he uses.

Are you sure!
Either I am missing something or you're mistaken.
I don't make knives anymore, haven't for years and I don't sell them or go to shows and definitely not in N.Z.
Am I going mad or you?  Wink

i've made two since reading this

a pig sticker, and a general deer knife

the sticker is a great way to start cause mistakes aren't so important and its essentially a stabbing device rather than cutting

the second one came up a treat, and is in the handle process

cheers for the thread

It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

Rightyo Cleakmeister

heres the smaller knife i made, half polished and starting to think about handle. Have had a test sharpen and its sweet. I just went to the local second hand tool shed and bought about 10 old files for $20. The rest was bench grinder, angle grinder, and a sharpening stone.

did the heat up and cool slowly thing and it was pretty easy to work with after that. the hardening and tempering seemed to be no big deal either

regardless of what you c*nts think anyway, i reckon the crims in D block would think it bloody handy!

bit rough i know and needs some finishing, but amazing how much i learnt ( already planning the next one - anyone got an old 6foot file Grin )
