    Yes just for the appearance. He did put clay on when heat treating to get a differential temper although it has no effect to the appearance as it is. If it was etched in acid you would see a Hamon line where the hard and softer steel meet.

    New Rat Trap Box

    It was very scientifically worked out. The equation i used was....... Partition= length of cuttings of firewood+overlapped by excess length of 2 cuttings and spaced out by thickness of one cutting. Equations were never really my thing so pure good luck it actually works! Kicking the box would have been the next equation!

    New Rat Trap Box

    Had problems with mice eating the bait. I am using some old frying oil and pouring plenty on the bait pan and letting it run under the traps. Seems to be working a treat.

    Camping Hatchet

    Not on it myself but have a look from time to time. Am over on EdgeMatters and just sold his Kitchen slicer on the sales there.

    Can anyone help me out?

    The stainless spydies are riveted together and not meant to be dismantled. I have a couple bigger ones. P1090247 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr P1090204 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr Some like the Delica the top one in the second picture are made to be able to change the scales (that one is for sale by the way HERE I could do something with it if you like. The easiest thing would be to glue scales on top of the stainless ones rather than dismantle and rivet scales on. Could do antler, wood, denim micarta, anything really you want. Regards Griff

    Tanto

    I cold ground it out of a HSS industrial planer blade to retain the original temper. I used an oxy-propane torch to take the temper out of the spine to give flexibility. Hadn't planned to leave the temper pattern visible but kind of liked it and think it adds to the whole Japanese dagger look. Griff

    Tanto

    Seems all quiet at the moment personally i am happy with the forum. Bruce has cancer and mental health issues, not to mention moving house and going through a divorce but this apparently is not a good enough excuse for a small minority of keyboard warriors who were relentlessly demanding answers. The mods finally had enough and banned them. Answers will be forthcoming all in good time.

    Tanto

    Just finished this Tanto style knife. It is made for a KITH (Knife In a hat) on another forum. You make a knife to a chosen style, names all go in a " hat" and you all get someone else's knife. This one is made from a HSS Planer blade, black denim wrap Micarta and copper trims.

    If you have pins right trough i don't think you would need any additional aid for the glue...... he probably drilled holes because he could and liked the look of them! If you had the ability to knurl it it wouldn't hurt but not necessary.

    Yes weight reduction and giving a good key for the epoxy glue.
