Hey guys, thanks for the encouragement. This has reminded me why I don't do too many of these they are a lot of work take a lot of time. I also tend to getwrapped up into what I am doing and forget to take pictures.

Whatever is easier for you. With so many pictures it could get tedious adding them one by one to KKF.

I think it is easier to view lots of photos this way.

Update, This knife is fubar. I spent three weeks working on this damn thing trying to work around the slight proublem that I created while forge welding the bolsters on. finally figured out how to get by that and finish the knife only to find out that when I quenched the blade the last weld broke. So all the pissing around I did to make sure the blade wouldn't cracl where the bolsters where welded on was for naught because it split out near the tip. I'll post picturesof the pieces, as soon as I find out where my daughter put my camera.

thanks Kalaeb, I does really suck but it is probably what I deserved for trying to make something work that wasn't quite right in the first place.

Hey Bill. Anything going on with this? Btw, I've got a big piece of musk ox horn that can be used for the handle, if we get that far....

I know you won't. I am not worried about it t all. I hate to see you put so much work into this, and it not turn out like you want. I'll be overjoyed to have ANY of your knives. Plz don't make it harder than it has to be.
