Finished up the big knife I was working on. Birdseye maple, pewter, brass and 1084 steel.

That’s a really nice knife.  I like the pewter work.

I have the wood and have finally found the buttplate and an acceptable trigger guard.  The barrel and lock are on the way.  They should be here Monday.  I should be cranking on it sometime mid March.

Sometimes only a large knife will do. If that's the case I want one like this. Nice work!

Brian, that turned out sweet!  I’m hoping to make a couple of blades this year, if I can find some forge time.

Greg, just try to avoid summer time. It gets pretty brutal with our heat and humidity it will make you hate forge work.
