Default A few pig stickers / camp knives

Here are a few that i just finished up. They are made from a farriers file, thats used to trim and shape horses' feet. I took out the temper ,then i surfaced ground them to remove the file teeth, drilled and ground them ,re-applied the heat-treat, and then installed the handles, and ground a false edge on the top of the blade just in the front.
The sheaths will be finished up next week.The blades are 9 inches with an overall length of 14 inches. They look heavy , but are as light as a feather , almost. I ground them with a big 'ol 14 inch hollow grinding wheel to help remove a lot of weight from them . These are great for a camp knife or a pig sticker.Thanks for looking . Scott

For some reason when you take the heat treat out of it BEFORE you gring them , they do not spark near as bad, or try to set the shop on fire.

I will , maybe next week , should be ready to start taking some pics of the shop. I added a 15 x 24 to the back of the shop , for a leather room on one side ,its about a 15 x 14 . The rest of it about a 10 x 14 is a reloading room , office , get-away room, man cave , you get the picture, just a " somewhere to hide " room. These two rooms are gonna be as dust free as i can make them.The doors are sealedto help also.


Papa bear , i sent you a pm.



Thank you gentlemen for the good words. Scott
