Glad I found this thread as I've just got into knife making. I've completed my first practical non pretty knife and I'm happy with the results. I'm now well into my second knife which is a larger Damascus blade with a fancier grain wood handle. I'm looking to add a vibrant red material as a spacer between the blade and handle which will make it stand out. Here's pics of my first knife, it's a little ugly but very practical

Soon as I catch up ill post a few for sale. I'm trying to get out of custom orders because the take so much extra time. This way I can build 100% out of my head! I think it will allow me to build faster better knifes at reasonable prices. This way I don't feel like I'm just building under pressure it takes some of the fun out of building when I know have 12 orders to fill.

I love seeing guys project knifes. It's awesome! I just started to build for fun and now my knife pay for my equipment. Nothing like a past time that pays for itself. Nice knife you made. I'm not a great knife maker but I know some people who are so it's nice to have people to ask questions about this craft. If you need some help or want to run a idea by someone just ask. If I don't know I'll ask some of the guys I know till I can get u a answer. Keep posting your progress please.

Thanks griffen, the one question I have is where can I find bar for the pins in multiple gauges? Texas knife has some but not in the size I need.

I get my pin material at my local hardware store. And hobby shops have some material too especially if you want to build your own custom pins. Some guys use stainless welding rod.
