    HI Picture Thread for Custom-Finish Blades

    AK bowie blued with Birchwood Casey Superblue. About 3 coats. 00 synthetic steel wool pads are about the best thing I have found for maintaining a khukuri finish. Not as harsh as a scotchbrite pad but not quite mirror polish either.

    Theft of HI Christmas Katana

    The best bet in this case is pursuing the Postal fraud charge. Sadly most police departments will do little if anything if the item value is under $1000. But since the item was shipped via USPS it is a Federal offense. Which also means a hopefully higher penalty for the thief.

    Old Hickory Butcher Knife 6"

    You can hack it off easy with a Dremel. Just dip it periodically in cold water. Same thing with the belt sander. You have to get the blade really hot before you mess up the heat treat. As long as you keep it cool it isn't an issue.

    Kill a rat contest.

    We have a winner! Since the bugger escaped my secured trap twice before I rigged up two side by side and connected the triggers with nylon cord. No more gnawing for him. Now I just need a suitable reward for Frank K.
