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?
Thanks Pierre!!! That is a great idea....Never thought of that. I am taking it slowly and praying lol
