It's always amusing when the thread starts a new page and I jump in and catch something like this completely out of context.




Edit; to make this post more useful, here's something relevant I made a while back.
(what, you didn't think I'd been doing nothing at all while I was away, did you?)

Total length ~ 16 inches

Rough edges were done with an angle grinder
fileknife_c.JPG
Grooves were made with the end of a belt sander (Obviously the sander wasn't running during this shot but you get the idea).
fileknife_d.JPG
I stamped the imperial legion emblem on here because I am a giant dork.
fileknife_e.JPG
Used the new foundry to heat treat this one. Also tesed out those thermocouple multimeters that harbor freight sells.
fileknife_f.JPG
Made a crossgaurd out of a big crane bearing. This was the same one my hunting knoif was made from
fileknife_g.JPG
Shineh
fileknife_h.JPG
I just threaded some tiger maple blocks and bolted them onto the tang when sanding it into shape. The pins that were put through them later were also threaded.
fileknife_i.JPG
I smeared some red high-temp silicone on one side of the joint before soldering. This was to keep the solder from dripping out when it was clamped upright.
fileknife_j.JPG
The rest was easy.
The pommel was fitted by blackening the underside and pressing it against the grip. Wood was removed where it left a 'print', until flush.

Final product. Still needs a sheath.

:shock:

Well glaze my nipples and call me Rita!

Bloody impressive work, wish I had the time for this knifemaking lark.

The stamping, did you actually make a stamp with the emblem or hammer it in following a pattern with something slightly more sophisticated that a screwdriver?

I just hammered it in. Broken allen wrenches make great punches for detailing work.
Not sure how to make stamps that are intended for steel; I'd think you'd either need a mill or a *very* steady hand.

Acid etching would be a relatively painless way of doing it, following by heat treatment to harden the punch itself.

Noice!

Have you thought about using 3D printing as a "lost wax" method of casting from metal? Or making moulds and casting from urethanes or similar?
