    Been laid up with an infection the last couple of days, and I guess the meds got to me. Ordered these two blades from North Coast Knives. Trying to decide what do do with the handles now…. 
    At least one of them needs nice G10 scales!
    I’m baaaaaaaaack… 😬

    Wow!  That is some impressive work, JR! 


    They look even better when put to work.

    The damascus blanks ive seen have been cheap pakistani junk. 
    These were made here in Alabama, which was part of the reason I bought them.
    Plus the guy that makes them is a Masonic brother.

    I misunderstood and apolagize for the way that came across. I thought you were talking about the damascus blanks that you see for sell that you finish by adding handle material of your choice.

    I'm playing fast and loose with the "knife" concept,
    But here's my brand new Finnish style ax, based off the old Billnas/Kellokoski patterns.
    Forged by a maker in Bulgaria, bought off of Etsy.

    Thus far it looks very promising.

    Seems to be, its 4160 steel, 26" long oal and comes in at 4 lbs, 13 oz.

    So fairly heavy for size but swings really well, I was a bit hesitant because I'm not usually keen on boys ax's but with the originals being luck of the draw as to what you get secondhand I bit the bullet.

    I'm glad I did, the bit on this is not really convex at all but a wedge, should be an excellent splitter and carver in softwood and just general camp ax.

    One of my all time favorite knives and I had one years ago which I manage to lose God only knows where.  I’ve been meaning to replace it forever…. 

    I love the astronaut knife!!!

    When I was way younger I collected a lot of things . Never got rid of the collections just packed them away in the attic . Then had room for a new collection .
    Some doubles & triples I had I would trade off for things in my new collection .
    Taking down my toy train set gave me a lot of needed room .
