i hoped to make them on the milling machine , like a 3 teared wooden stand , but time is against me .

well there is not alot left now fellas ,

just two small laser cut blanks .

im gonna set the damascus in a red stag tine tommorow .

the finnished bush craft with oak is still for sale .

the fancy leaf shaped finnished knife and the letter opener .

lets see what next week will bring !!

iv been keeping this to my self but i have paid a bloody fortune for a computer aided designer to draw up my designs into a format that i can get laser cut , monday/ tuesday i will place the first order . its only a small order of 3 knife styles but its a beggining , this might open your eyes up a little , the first few quotes came in at £27 each thas for un heat treated un tempered o1 tool steel just cut to shape , and i sell for £2 less than that to you guys .... but they are heat treated tempered ground and polished for that !!! its been a battle to get the price down but i have . so please support this as much as you can so it can evolve into somthing perminant , the more i sell the better the prices will become .

bear in mind i have spent thousands on this now and im plunging more into it everyday !!

god that sounds like black mail ha ha .

 

now i have foot in the door with this maybe we can look to do the compatition we talked about last year ?

      Been busy with other things so not made a knife for a while. There is a KITH over on EM and the challenge was to make a Puukko form recycled materials....right up my street.
      Blade ground form a HSS industrial planer blade. Handle is stacked from recycled brass, copper, stainless and filled in with denim Micarta. All cast onto the handle in a oner then ground to shape.

      It is an idea that has been floating around in my head for a while....using wast oil to fire a forge up to welding temp. Anyone that does much forge welding knows fuel is expensive!
       
      I was looking to keep it as simple as possible so gravity fed fuel and low pressure air with no fancy nozzles to get clogged.
       
      This is the solution i came up with.
       
      Based around an old propane bottle. Filled with water and cut top and bottom off.
       
      P1090436 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090437 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090438 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">
       
      Brake disk welded on vent end and an old chimney pot for the inner skin.
      P1090440 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090442 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090443 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">
       
      Ceramic wool on the inside of the door, base and between the pot and the steel bottle.
      P1090444 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090445 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">
       
      Painted rigidizer on the ceramic wool on the door and around the pot, layed a piece op polythene on and closed tight and let it dry. The pot was left 20mm proud so it pushed into the wool and formed a checked seal.
      P1090446 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">
       
      Cored a hole through the lot for the burner.
      P1090447 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090448 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">
       
      Burner 50mm scaffold pipe with stainless milker nipple nozzle on the end. Something like a 8mm steel pipe down the middle for an oil feed. Initially i left the end of the air pie restricted thinking it would spray the oil better but it restricted the air flow too much so i cut it back to nearly full bore.
      P1090449 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090450 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090451 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090453 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090454 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">
       
      After first fire the chimney pot is cracked but still in tact. I put o piece of stainless steel 6mm plate in the chamber where the oil lands. This needs to be red hot for the oil to vaporize and ignite. The first burn i just threw some paper and sticks in and lit them up then started injecting oil and air. For the next burn i added a quick hitch point pr a propane line to pre-heat before starting the oil injection.

      Pics of the assembled unit. Waste oil holder is just a plumbers gas bottle with the bottom cut off and a simple tap to control the oil flow.

      Here she is on her maiden run at forging steel. Ever optimistic i went for forge welding straight off. About 12 strands of bed spring and 4 strips of file welded in a bundle then forge welded like a cable weld, twisting them together. These pics are all with the burner shut off, just the after glow!
       
      P1090462 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090463 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090461 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090465 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090468 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090469 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">
       
      This thing pumps out insane heat. After running at welding temps for a couple of hours it has actually started to melt the fire-clay chimney pot! May replace it with fire-bricks or refractory, but will wait till it disintegrates,
       
      P1090470 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090471 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">
       
      In summary: The whole thing was built entirely from scrap.The fuel is even free. The only thing i paid for was the ceramic wool and welding rods. Best used outside. It burns surprisingly clean but i wouldn't chance running it in an enclosed space. The blower is an old variable speed hoover...again off the dump. It pumps out insane heat but is quite adjustable. It will light up again without pre-heat half an hour after the previous shut down....just turn on the oil and air.
       
      Finally here is the forge welded Damascus blank.
