I'm sure you will nail it Mike! One day I will work with some Musk Ox horn, it is the coolest stuff.
I hear you on the cold shop, yesterday the high was 6F, not pleasant but my kydex is grinding well!
Keep it up!
It is getting there...I swear. I work on it inside at night so the materials are not sitting out in my garage.....I promise, as soon as this project i am working on right now is done, i am finishing this one...Wife told me i had to
Ok, i have been slacking on this project. I was unsure of how to get this one to work out, but it is a go again. I have the ferrule assembly drilled and fitted to the blade now and just have a little bit of trimming to do on the horn before final glue up.Took quite a but if work to get this thing all flowing in the right direction, but here are a few pics of where this is at right now. I am heading out to get lunch and groceries( i should NEVER go grocery shopping hungry...extra $100 every time) but plan on getting it all final glued when i get back. I am really hoping to get the handle shaped tonight. I did some regrinding on the blade, to add in a bit more distal taper, but i think i am going to do some more later today.
Hoping to keep this project rolling along at a good pace...What do you guys think so far?
Looks good! Have you considered JB Weld? It is tempreature stable to near 600F. Down side is its color. It can be dyed.
Thanks Pierre!!! That is a great idea....Never thought of that. I am taking it slowly and praying lol
