Project Information

Tried my hand at some scale making. Species used were claro walnut, peruvian walnut, maple burl, padauk, and maple/walnut veneer. Used brass pins and 30 minute epoxy to set the scales onto the blades. Finished with multiple coats of Tru Oil and buffed out on the Beall lathe system. Not flawless, but really turned out solid.

Hope it inspires some of you to give it a try.

Once I buff out the steel blades, they will be ready for their new homes.

Sure Mike. Woodcraft sells them. They come with set screws, but I toss them out in favor of cutting brass pins.

Those look great. I think the Padauk one is my favorite (2nd picture, middle one)

No favorites here, they are all beautiful, the wood combinations are great, and the brass pins certainly adds richness

Now it's time to play with leather. ;-)

Mads - It's on the list of skills to learn. Would make for a complete project. Then I'll need to learn how to forge/shape/grind steel.

You can take a look here; http://www.felding.net/7knifemaking1.html how I make the sheaths.
Yes I also need to get into that forging part…
Did make a few knifes from recycle plane iron and other stuff, that's quite easy, just keep it cool.
You can look in my projects.
Smiles,
Mads
