i can get um to shine more than that and flatter finnished than that , nice little clue as what im aiming for next year !!

do you mean the file work steve ?

i just ground the handle back into the holes that run round the blank .

or if you mean the rippling effect in the steel then thats just the trizact abrazive it has a weird nature to it .

thank for the compliments fellas

Well, a bit more progress today. Here is the knife after having the CA glue and brass powder addedpost-32944-0-52285900-1356176382.jpg

 

Which reminds me of the black adder sketch where lord Percy makes the "purest green" ;)

 

But once sanded back it looks like this

Some of the occlusions are going to need a bit more filling but you get the idea. Still lots of work to be done but I'm hoping this will all go well. Just not sure wether to varnish, oil or wax it after I have it sanded to where I want it. Any suggestions?

 

Cheers, Rob.

Cheers mate, more CA and brass powder added this afternoon, so I'll get back to sanding again tomorrow.

 

Does anyone have any hints on what finish to use?

120 grit then ca it sand back to 240 ca it and so on and so on , light buff with felt mop and white compound will look like glass !!

all the best , matt

still need to make the sheath but that's not going to get done before years end.

may go back and rework the handle at some point in the future but I'm quite happy with the outcome overall. Blade sharpened nicely and looks like it will be a very useable knife :)

      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.
