    I don't know what it is about this knife but it sure was a struggle...

    Here are a couple more "struggles" I had a hard time tapping the brass straight to make my pommel nut so there are some gaps. When I tried tightening it down with my plier jaws taped up the nut got damaged... I want to make a new one but I don't know how I will tighten it up without causing damage again.

    For the most part the knife is done. I want to do a little more polishing yet and it needs a final sharpening.

    Time for a sheath!

    Thanks Icho, I had some old Winchester 38-40 brass that I wanted to use but I messed them all up... It's hard to tap threads free hand in something so small and keep it square.

    Love it Metal, great work!!! Struggle or not that's a great looking blade dude!!! :cool: Hey about tightening the Winchester pommel nut could you drill a really small hole in the side and use a tiny Allen key or something to torque it? You would have a tiny hole but save the brass finish? Just a thought..

    That is stunning man. Really like the look of that leather and brass combo, and the pommel nut is wicked. I have see them used for lock bar stoppers, inlays, thumb studs, and other things but I don't think I have seen one used as a pommel nut. Very creative. All these good looking knives have me a bit worried about mine lol.

    It looks great. I think the rifle shell pommel is a cool touch. Well done.

    This has to win the prize for the "if this knife could talk" stories. It turned out amazing in the end.

    Thanks everyone, I even had problems with the sheath for this knife!!! Haha oh well. It's done now besides a final sharpening. I sure hope it gets some use!

    I might make another retaining strap because I can still pull the knife out with this strap. It was just a tiny bit to long. That only takes a little while so its not a big deal.

    Very nice work metal. That is one beautiful combo you made there. Still loving that leather and brass combo. I may have to try one of my own some day.

    Thanks guys!

    Give it a whirl Grazer! It's not as hard as I made it sound! I just have bad luck sometimes lol. Like a few minutes ago when I was sharpening it I held it to flat on the stone and scratched her up bad! Lol I'm always causing more work for myself.

    I feel your pain when it comes to making more work for yourself. The other day while hand sanding and daydreaming, I had a stray strip of sandpaper get mixed up and before I noticed, my 800 grit blade was a 400 grit blade. Don't even ask about the time I burned my hand grinding at 220 pre ht, and ran the belt up over the plunge. It's a good thing there are no children in my house to have heard that one lol. Or the time I decided to spend a whole day grinding a knife, then brine quench for a bolder hamon. I am pretty sure I used words that don't even exist when I pulled the blade out and found that I was not holding a knife anymore, but a tang and a ricasso.

    Sounds like a typical day in the shop for me! Lol I have only had one blade crack on me when I did a water quench. I was so mad I smashed the rest of the blade on the side of the table saw! Then I clamped the rest of it in the vice and beat the &;@(@;&- out of it! Lol
