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.

Nice work ūüĎć

Just wondering have the issues on the other forum been sorted yet?

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.

Yh I knew what was going on as I was a subscriber, stopped my renewal until it's all been sorted.

i met Bruce at Bardsters meet seemed a nice enough guy just waiting for it to be all resolved as it is a nice friendly place to visit.

Eh up Griff. I've been a bit quite for a while. Had last CT yesterday so hoping all's good. Enjoyed you pics and just thought I'd put a little something in the mix. It's yours if you want to do a number on it.

Wow!!! How did you made the heat treatment? Clay? 

Very cool 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.
