Hardy, firstly i dont want to stuff up your thread.  So plse advise - are we only talking folders or does any blade go.  Happy to start a new thread if required.

Want to post some pics and have some discussions.  Got some real Kukris and want to chat about fix blades and axes?

Kind of you to ask - I think we should change the topic name. Numerous people have asked for this.
Thanks

Something for you, a pic of my three monkey Wakizashi, not a folded blade but forged and properly heat-treated

Courtesy Martialartswords.com
(Perhaps the greatest difference between the katana and the wakizashi is the length. While there are always exceptions, most wakizashi featured a blade length of 12 to 24 inches (30 to 60 cm), whereas the katana featured an average blade length of 23 5⁄8 28 3⁄4 in (60 to 73 cm).Feb 1, 2018)

And a pic of my working knifes: the top OTF (out the front) Cobratec is a nice working knife and I love the easy deployment whilst working, this is a budget OTF and not my ultimate choice, would love something like a Microtech or even a  Benchmade Infidel OTF.
The Leatherman Surge speaks for itself and it is still my choice when talking multitool
The Spyderco Salt series is my underwater working knife, I also carry a larger fixed blade Greenriver but inevitably always end up using my Spyderco
Lastly my trusted little Kershaw Biltong knife

@Oshkosh
Tell me more about that Skean Dhu plse...  mine got stolen.  Wore it with my uniform at CTH.  Also wore a Dirk and Claymore - but those were regimental issues.

@KiLRoy
My Sister gave it to me as a gift when they came back from the UK.

The Delica G10 was a sprint run in the usual VG-10.
The Endela shown is only available in FRN and VG-10 at this point.
Today Im also carrying another FRN VG-10 folder.

Really nice work there hardy :thumleft:

Do prey tell how. Are the blades welded onto the holder or is that a forged piece?

I deleted the auction board since it doesnt get used and added a knife board. Took the liberty to make hardy, shark and oshkosh moderators.  Feel free to say no and for others to volunteer. See if we can move all blade related stuff to this board.  Ask mods for help if required. Think this interest group is big enough to warrant its own board?

I buy the blades as templates, fire forge it, reshape, file, grind and detail it, temper it again, and after that I start with the leather work. I absolutely believe that a blacksmith is what I should have become. I have serious respect for blacksmiths.  a Lost art
