That looks great Jake, handle looks really comfortable ...

I started on the hidden tang like you suggested .. it will be my first attempt.
Wish me luck :D

For first one, use brass or bronze for bolster, nicely soft enough for easy fitting :)

Looks actually very very nice, i might stole the handle shape, only problem i see is that it will be hard to make a traditional style shieth for a handle like that (i mean those that i make for my puukkos)

If you have a oxy-ace torch at hand you might want to burn the tang hole. Drill a STRAIGHT hole completely though the wooden handle block and heat the tang to red-yellowish colour and stick through the hole. Though remember to do this before heat treating :D

Would also like to state that this was done by a hand file completely... My friend wanted his dremel back after i told him i was getting high carbon steel to make a knife... He said it would knacker the dremel xD. I did about an hour or less a week!

Hehe :D not bad for first and especially with a file! How are you planning to heat-treat it?

Oh, and 0.8 is not yet high carbon, as far as im concerned :wink:

Finally... finals are over, had some time to spare ...

Steel is W2, tempered to 58 HRC.

Laminated some denim w/epoxy, and went crazy with the belt grinder :D
added some brass like you said Jake :P

It's based on the template i drew, but i went with a more "traditional" handle style.

Oooooh sexeh!

I'm fascinated by the handle, how exactly did you laminate the denim :shock: something you can up with after one too many beers or is it an established technique?

Edit: Nevermind

Brilliant!

What is a palm swell? Does that mean it gets thicker toward the middle of the handle?
