  1. I have a couple of DOC 150 traps. They are stainless steel and last well. Very sensitive pressure plate.
  2. Very nice. I like the contrast of the red/black/bronze spacers.
  3. You have been busy. Stunning work as always Nicolas, thanks for sharing.
  4. That's a bummer! Horrible feeling when that happens. Will keep my eyes open.
  5. This guy recommends nitromors but wrap the whole thing in a bin bag to soak without drying out. http://riflesunlimited.co.uk/stock_refinishing
  6. Not done much in wood but have been known to attack a piece of antler with a dremmel. P1060101_zpsmkrlwv2d by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr P1070738 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr P1060338_zpswlvrudog by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr P1060041_zpsayfarrqs by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr
  7. I found you need the jig to keep the blade in a consistent position on the wheel. Free hand it wanders all over the place and is impossible to get a decent edge. As Balaur says try a smaller wheel to slow the surface speed down. The faster speeds i found don't work quite as well. Tip: Frequently flip the blade toward the end of the sharpen and give light passes.
  8. Cost me £25 to build. MORE DETAILS Griff

  10. The Moras are Sandvik stainless steel. If you go onto Heinnie Haynes and search for Sandvik it gives you quite a few options. You should pick up something for under £40. Just check with the frame/linear locks knives that they can be operated left handed as some are recess for the stud only on the Right. This one seems to fit the bill though. QS Piglet.
  11. You can't go wrong with a Mora for a use & abuse knife. You could buy a horizontal carry sheath for one. people make/sell them on ETSY . You could even adapt an original sheath. with a couple of loops fitted around it so it can be worn horizontal on your belt. These CLIPS are good for horizontal carry sheath making. I use them when i make a Kydex sheath. P1060532_zpsqhqtof1g by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr P1060883_zps3seusc9f by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr
  12. Not realy for grinding just putting a wicked sharp polished edge on. Saying that it is surprising how much removal it will do.
  13. Very nice! Where do you get your 1095 powder from?
  14. Yes a lot of choice out there. Depends what your budget is. If you go for something with blade steel S35VN you won't go far wrong. If you are after a light weight knife the Boker Plus Exskelibur II is nice. I have one and can't fault it. No thumb stud but the action is so smooth it can easily be pinched open with one hand. https://www.heinnie.com/boker-plus-exskelibur-ii-carbon-fibre VG10 is another good blade material to look out for. I have a Spiderco Delica new in a box which i would sell. Pm if interested. It has a thumb hole and is easily opened with one hand. https://www.heinnie.com
  15. If you don't mind a locking blade then a framelock with a thumb stud is good for one handed opening. Non locking is a bit trickier to find one that is easily open-able with one hand.
