    Really nice !!!

    A little question: The stainless bolster, how do you fix them ??? With the same epoxy or glue you use for the micarta ???

    Thanks

    Hi Forge, What is the stainless you are using? no issues with the forge weld to the 52100? Can I assume that you heat treat for only the 52100?

    Love the look of the dark high carbon and the nice shiny stainless.

    Cheers,

    James.

    That blows me away. I LOVE the way that looks. Beautiful and nasty at the same time.
