    Another gorgeous knife!

    What kind of acid do you use for that etching?

    That's about a perfect finish. Reminds me of beadblasting or Parkerizing.

    Of course neither of those would reveal the hamon though.

    Since I joined this forum about a month ago, I have started looking for forks everywhere I go....started making paracord stuff....in the process of making a Rambone and 2 natural forks and now it looks like I am going to have to learn how to makes knives. This forum has infected me with the go make something bug:D Great job on the knife!

    Now we have a problem TP, I like the blade from this one, but the toxic green removable scales on the file knife looks much better for me. Maybe we can cut them both and then we weld them back together…:D

    As you may know, some people can recognize by looking at the “Hamon” the blacksmith and master, for example on Japanese swords. I'm curious if we'll see it in your next creations …;)

    Now seriously, both of them are eye candy. For me a smooth blade is easier to keep clean. And as we have to pay attention to “42a” here in Germany, I don’t like to see that my custom knife is taken away from some “blue” people… (I think you understand my concern)

    Your knifes getting better and better. I was afraid that you stopped working on knifes!

    lol, no i didnt. and the scales are removable, so they can be exchanged. i also made shorter knives, friction folders etc. but my love is still for the huge blades.

    great work tp! i really like the fact that you can exchange the handle, though this one looks great on the blade so no need to do so ;)

    Hey T.P. I had a question for you. What do you quench your blades in after heat them?
