    Winchester Black Box Sharpening

    I have sharpened a couple of those- the steel is hard and the edges (as you mention) are thick. Just be patient and take your time! If you have diamonds that would make the job much quicker:)

    WW2 sword from Japan

    Apparently there were quite a few made- my research says over 80k! I need to gently clean mine a little to read the numbers, but I certainly don’t want to overdo it.

    What is your opinion of Tuna Valley?

    I had one the whittlers at one point, I think it was a Queen made version. Nice knife overall, but the grinds were too thick for my liking.

    WW2 sword from Japan

    I just wanted to share this with people who would appreciate it:) My dad has had this sword hanging in his garage for as long as I can remember. I have always admired it, more for the family history than the sword itself. My grandad fought in Okinawa during WW2, and brought this back. Like...

    What would you do with this knife, a thread for green river knife blades.

    How are you going to finish the wood? Also- in my experience it is MUCH easier to fit oversized handles on the knife and then grind them to size.

    What would you do with this knife, a thread for green river knife blades.

    The tough part (at least for me) is getting the edges even all around. How thick did you make the handles? Did you epoxy the wood or just pin it?

    What would you do with this knife, a thread for green river knife blades.

    I have made a couple of kitchen knives with that same blade, they take a nice edge. I put some old flooring wood handle on one (from my grandparents house) and put some dyed box elder on the other for my wife. On both, I drilled an extra hole (as seen in the picture) so the pins could be...

    I realize that was an Inkosi! I would think they would be coming soon

    Sebenza 31 type inlays on Inkosi ?

    I too would like to see some variety for the inlays- how about we start with snakewood and bloodwood? Lol And to respond directly to the OP- I also agree that a one piece inlay would be great on the Inkosi!
