thanks, these have some really choice pieces for handles. I do make the beads when there is enough materials left over. Bad thing is you skin up a lot of knuckles making them lol

That black ash kind of reminds me of popcorn

This knife is 8 3/8 with a 3 3/4 inch blade. The wood is Stabilized Green Afzelia. It almost has a florescent look to it. As you move it in the light, you get a hologram effect. The yellow liners and the gold logo really set it off. The pictures don't even come close.

Looking closer I can see some Hamon like action going on. Does that mean the spines are softer? If so what do you think are the pros and cons of that?
Title: Re: Some of my latest

That's awesome, Dan! Nice work.

I usually do a hamon on my blades. So the cutting edge is harder than the spine. I think on a blade that's .200 thick and 3 1/2 inches long you aren't going to get any flex anyway. I just think it looks cool. Sometimes I polish out the hamon but I don't like shiny, high polished things. Check out my gallery of knives for more hamons www.dtknives.com

Title: Re: Some of my latest
Post by: Unknown on April 17, 2015, 01:45:38 AM
Thanks Dan. I think it can serve a purpose when there is a hard edge, makes the blade a bit tougher maybe if you baton. but not well suited for strikin a ferro rod. Chews up the spine on a pretty knife. Yours look sweet as is rather obvious from the gorgeous pics!
Title: Re: Some of my latest

Wow! I really like the copper!

And the file you used, if I am not mistaken it is one of those antique files used for auto body work back in the days when they filled dents with lead solder.

Really great work. :thumbsup:

Just made this one and it's about as tactical as I can get. I like the older style but this one is growing on me. 9 inches long with a 4 inch blade. Stabilized Amboyna and blaze orange G-10 spacers with a thin black liner.

I've been working on some damascus steel. This one has box elder scales

Nice one.  Great pattern on the steel and that wood just "pops"

thanks, the hard part was finding something that didn't clash with the pattern of the blade.

with all the time and materials that go into them, sorry to say they ain't cheap. But they are affordable.  I guarantee each one whether you're prying the lid off a tank or your wife runs it through the dishwasher. Check out my FaceBook page or the website or even just call me to shoot the bull! I got nothing to do all day lol

This one is box elder. The blade has a cool little hamon line going through it

woah! i just flipped through the whole thread, absolutely awesome man! I was wondering if you might be persuaded to do a tutorial on your file tempering process, I just had a failure about a week ago and have been feeling pretty discouraged. I really want to get back at it.
Title: Re: Some of my latest
Post by: Dan308 on May 24, 2016, 06:35:45 PM
I just normalize 3 times and ramp to 1550 degrees hold for a few minutes then oil quench. Tempering is 400 for 2 hours

How about this elk antler?

finished a Caping knife with Mesquite burl, really cool wood. The bottom knife has Box Elder. Both made on the 14 inch wheel. Haven't decided if I like the hollow grind or the flat grind better

You are getting seriously good Dan!  Those look really really nice.  I like your makers mark too!  Simple but elegant.  Have you messed around with a user in the s35vn steel?  I've never tried it myself but it's getting awfully tempting to try.  I hear good things on it.

I like the S35vn steel. I have used this steel a few times and I've got a few more blanks to finish. These were hardened to 60 and so far are wicked sharp. If I don't sell them all I'm going to take one on my elk hunt this year. That should be a good test

Post by: wolfy on January 07, 2017, 01:05:24 PM
.....what Stan said^   Another thing I appreciate is leaving just vestiges of the original file teeth present on the spine to indicate its origins.  While I like the appearance of the knives or rasps with the whole side of the knives covered with teeth, they look like they'd be more of a job to clean and create a hindrance when cutting meat, cheese or anything else that they'd have a tendency to stick in......but what do I know? :shrug:

Amazing.  You are able to raise the bar every time.  That burlwood in the second knife is as good as it gets.

Well the time spent picking the material pays off. Your style is a good blend of usable art, with enough color and shine to show off without being too flashy.

Looove your work. Would love to make my own stacked leather knife. Do you know of a kit similar to the above knife that a newb could acquire? I'd try doing from scratch but have no way of making the pommel/screw thing-a-ma-bobber...
Title: Re: Some of my latest
Post by: Dan308 on July 18, 2017, 08:42:38 PM
I don't know of any kits to make this style. I guess you could press it all together and peen the tang as it comes through the cap?

Thanks, I got a few emails from them months ago. I'm not into drama so I really don't want to do the show. Heck, I'd rather do a show where someone would show me how to do things. I've got lots to learn.

CPM154 stainless steel hardened and Cryo'd to 60HRC. Stacked leather with brass guard and end cap. 10 3/8 OAL with a 5 inch blade. I like the way this blade is shaped. Wish I could get lucky and make another lol
