Nice. Even the blade is a work of art. I just read up on how to make Damascus steel. Now all I need is a forge.

Hey Dave, I have looked into forgeing knifes. You can build a forge the expensive thing is a good anvil.
I have been keeping my eye out for one. The ideal thing to have is a power hammer now We are talking big money!

I'd love to have a forge. I have too many hobbies as it is now. I haven't touched my stamp collection in years. My tractor restoration is way behind schedule. My trebuchet needs work. And I have a coffee table project, along with several other wood working projects, to complete.

Thanks Michael, I appreciate your compliment!  Most of what I learned came from you being free with sharing your knowledge.
