Parts of an Anvil

Another interesting info image with the english terms for a german DIY-er. Taken from here.


Metallurgy Facts

I found this post on metallurgy on Tumblr and thought I’d share. For me as an amateur knife maker, this is very interesting!


“The Hunted”

I made this one in 2014 (I wonder why I never posted it) for a friend of mine. It’s modeled after the knife in the Film “The Hunted” (2003). He wished for it and I tried my best. 


More on knife making

I found the time to work on the new knives a little, so I made some parts for the handle of the smaller one. It’s Bone -> Rosewood -> Guitar-Pickguard-Material -> and for the Rest I’m not sure yet. 


Angle Grinder Jig

This is another approach on grinding bevels to my self made knives. It consists of an angle grinder connected to an adjustable arm with a ball joint at the end to allow it to move freely. It can be set to multiple grinding angles and it’s swinging radius is also big enough for large blades.


Some knife making progress

I was finally able to continue work on the two knives still in the queue last weekend. Ground the bevels, smoothed the edges and drilled the holes for the handles. I also grabbed some material for the handle pins.


Self Made Bevel Grinding Jig

I made myself a reasonable jig for grinding bevels on my knives. It’s very hard to do that with bad or wiggly jigs (that I had before) and – for a non-smith like me – virtually impossible to do only by hand. This is the result:


Axe makover

O.K. Call me mad… nuts… crazy… I want to try an Axe-makover. I had this hatchet lying around in my garage, cheap, blunt, neglected and dirty. Aaaand I want to turn it into some object resembling a viking battle-axe (something looking roughly  like this).


Knife progress

 

Had a little time off yesterday and continued grinding the new blades. Just some small spots left on each one to adjust, which I’ll probably do by hand.


Finally! Started working on a new Knife!

On two knives to be exact and I began the rough shaping today with the angle grinder. Both of them are going to be made from the carbon steel that I have here and that I always use (“1.2842” or “90MnCrV8”).
