    Also, make sure that when you're grinding - especially the tip - do small passes and dip the blade in water in between passes to keep the blade cool. You don't want to change the tempering by...

    I'm just a newbie but I'd suggest you'd want to even up the heel to get rid of the concavity and perhaps regrind the tip profile (easiest to drop the tip a little by grinding from the spine-side). ...

    Thanks Anton - that's a good thread. I'm pretty happy with the join I got between the spacers and the spine but I don't think I clamped it enough between the ferrule and handle. I'll see if I can...

  8. Another cheap western - conversion & re-handle

    The third instalment in my "cheap westerns" series :wink: This one was a really worn out petty/utility that I've converted to a nice paring for the missus. This knife served many years duty as a...

    For the mosaic pin, I use a tiny dab of super (CA) glue to hold all the bits in place while I draw the epoxy up through the tube - makes a huge difference. That's a nice piece of wood you got there...
