I'm looking for a knife sorta like OP's pic but with a thinner spine (.150" or less). 6.5" blade would be nice, but length can change up for down depending on how it balances. And a better grip; maybe a finger rest or something to keep my hand from sliding up onto the blade accidentally.

Ideas? I'd prefer not to have to shell out big bucks for to a guy to make a one-off thing like pic related in his garage.

Looking for a good Bowie knoife, the inner Texan in me needs one to compensate penis size. But needs to be around the size of a real Bowie knife. Not the 7-8” ones you see sold all the time. If i remember correctly I’ve seen the original was 11”, but I’d settle for 9 1/2”-10”

Local craft store had some conchos when I went for synthetic sinew.

I think they're real silver coins, domed and a screw back post soldered on. I picked up 2 half dollars and 2 buffalo nickels.
Funny thing is that if they're real, they're 1935 silver half dollars selling for under $4, but have a melt value of just over $7.

Pretty cool, a hatchet-style handle for big choppers is something I'd like to try sometime. But most of what I make is art fag chefs knives and other cutlery rather than outdoorsy stuff.
>>
>>1138153
I've been focusing on axes and hatchets, lately. A hatchet and a small knife are far more effective than a large knife for general camping needs. But I do like carrying a decent sized knife when I'm hunting. Processed a few deer with the pig bone bowie.

Now that I'm getting back into leather work, I need to make some proper masks and carrying rigs for my user hatchets/axes.
>>
>>1138157
Yeah there's always a compromise with them where they either don't slice or don't chop depending on the edge geometry, though I do have a soft spot for a good machete with a solid convex grind. I've only ever made one axe and its got nothing for anyone into /out, unless you be fighting bears or some shit and it was so much fucking work I vowed never to do it again.

Have a pile of leather because 'yeah, better make some sheaths one day' and its been sitting there for the last 14 months as I got distracted by shiny things

Just remember, they're military surplus antiques, and they've been selling them for years. All the best ones might be gone. I got my hand picked Bhojpure probably 10 years ago.

And definitely don't get their non-antique kukris. Garbage.

You might be better off shopping at Himalayan Imports or Kukri House for a quality piece.
>>
>>1138830
If you go with an Atlanta Cutlery antique, get the hand picked option if it's still available.

More importantly, opt for one WITHOUT the sheath. The traditional kukri sheath design is crap, and it doesn't get better with 75 years of dry rot.

When I had a Himalayan Imports Gelbu Special, I had to rig a new frog to carry it cross-draw. Better, but still sucked. Got rid of it, but mostly because that model is thick and narrow, didn't chop well. Probably a good fighter.

Yeah, screw that. If I want a cheap Paki knife, the gun shows here always have some jackass selling a table full of Paki, damascus, custom, handmade CRAP like they're the greatest thing since sliced bread.

You can pick up Paki blade blanks for cheap and hilt em up yourself for pennies on the dollar. Which is what a surprising amount of "knifemakers" do; buying cheap knife blades, slapping on a handle and sheath, and peddling them like they're custom quality. In reality, they're flea market tier knives.

"Damast" and "damasteel" are not words.

You mean "damascus", which is a modern, improper term used to refer to pattern-welded steel.

Cheap, Paki, pattern-welded blades are cheap for a reason. You don't know what grades of steel are used, and they likely have been given a half assed heat-treat.

Expensive, Paki, pattern-welded blades are just cheap blades marketed to bigger suckers.

>>1139362
>>1139375

There seems to be some confusion here.
There are currently two types of steel of this kind.

One is "damascus" steel, which is indeed - pattern welded steel (side note, it's called Damast/Dziwer here in Poland).

The second type is called "damascene steel", aka "bulat", or "wootz" (pic related, not my knife) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wootz_steel
>>
>>1139673
No shit sherlock?
theres just huge quality differences between "pattern welded" steels, and paki pressed "damascus" is about as low as it gets, one step above etching a pattern on.
>>
>>1139673
Damascus was the European nickname for wootz, under the impression that it came from the Damascus region.

Now people incorrectly use it to refer to any pattern welded steel.
>>
>>1139704
hence the distinction between damascus (pattern welded), and damascene (bulat/wootz)
>>
>>1139714
Your "distinguishing" is wrong. Reread my post over and over until you understand it.
>>
>>1139362
Funny thing is, the Paki's are actually good metalworkers when you get out of the backstreet beater market, quite a lot of the worlds scalpel blades are made there and hell, they've been blacksmithing for fucking centuries.
One more important factor is those blades like the a-typical pattern welded knife from them is that the edge geometry is generally way too steep to make a good slicer and being all flat grinds, kind of hard to make for a good chopper... a sword, forget it!

But at the prices and cost of labour of having someone run a power hammer or press for $200 a week, its fairly hard for someone to come to me and go "well that 'same' knife is $30 on ebay, why are you going to charge me $6-700?" and then we get into the spiel about certified steel sources, my time/labour costs, all the other incidentals, why its not shit etc. Pretty hard to compete with the 3rd world on a manual tradeskill, especially when cheap and pretty is what most people want.
Pattern welded steel when its done right and tight is ok, but its mostly just done for looks as all our current, modern steels far exceed the need to combine them with anything else, add in a few centuries of documented heat treatments, techniques and so forth, you'll get a good consistent product with a mono steel knife with no risk of imperfections, delams or other messiness. Plus its just a lot of extra work, no one wants to actually pay for that work at a premium level, so Pakistan is pretty safe to continue making pattern welded stuff for a while yet.

i kinda feel like a sucker my dudes
>>
>>1139723
it's not wrong. Yes - the name "damascus" came from the fact that the steel was believed to come from that region (it was from India), and now people use the name "damascus" to describe what is actually pattern welded steel.

On the other hand, there is the other type of steel - bulat, aka wootz, that is also called "damascene steel". The difference is that the pattern in wootz is created in the smelting process, not by twisting together bars of different steel to create a pattern.

>>1139787
that's exactly how pattern welded steel works, and 200 layers is not that impressive. Folding the steel 10 times creates 1024 layers (2^10).

Only until a cop decides to enforce the law he's normally willing to ignore in that particular situation.

He’s 450lbs and doesn’t want people to see his obese hand that he will lose to diabetes within the next 5 years

You probably call all copiers "Xerox machines", regardless of whether or not they are actually made by the Xerox corporation.

I bet you also call firearm magazines "clips" because it's cool to sound like an ignorant hoodlum.

I carry a KA-BAR utility and I go way, way /out/, which is 7" on the blade.

4-5" really lack it in hacking vines and shitty nests of tangled weeds.

Here's my knife, it's a little over 5" not very kitchen/cheffy though. It's more of a stabby hacker.

>>1138752
No, you can't have it.
>>
>>1137141
not op but ive got the carbon version. on itself its a very good knife, nice for chopping and you can carve pretty good on the lower edge. if you are one of those "one tool" guys it will probably be good for you. its hard to use with a ferrorod. I cleaned my whole backyard from plants with this thing and also hit the stoneground a few times but didnt get huge chips or bends in the blade

Very helpful thanks Anon.

>>1136803

420HC is fine for what the knife is made for. Cleaning big game.
>>
>>1137138
are those type of sharpeners good to use on carbon steel?
>>

You're a special kind of retard

Take a file to the spine and get a good 90° spine on it and try the second technique in the vid, it works well with longer knives and has good control.

I just ordered a Buck 119 Special with leather sheath
Did I fuck up?
>>
>>1143319
You fucked up by researching your purchase after you made it. Or by post-whore bragging about your ability to click a button on Amazon.

Either way.
>>
>>1143328
Then you didn't research it.

Snow and Neally is a classic axe brand. But researching them would show they halted production in Maine and until recently, were made in China. Now I believe the company is Amish owned and made in the USA, again.

Why do I know? Because I researched before I bought a S&N axe instead of recognizing the name, buying it, THEN asking if it was as a smart purchase or not.
>>
>>1143332
This.

What's stopping you from completely dressing a deer with a buck 110?

Hey what do you guys think of the ColdSteel Trailmaster?

>clip point half the length of the blade
For what purpose?
>>
>>1143879
Time and skills
>>
>>1143929
Being edgy?
You're right it serves no purpose.
But it also doesn't really hinder at work, right?

Any good? Too tacticool? Too gimmicky? Also how do you know if they're "the real deal"?
>>
>>1144008

The purpose is stabbiness, useful if you're trying to bury it into a pig's heart, but if you really need that pointed out maybe it's not the knife for you.

What has the best lubricant properties for a SAK, olive oil or cooking oil?

It's a fighting knife (don't attempt to knife fight someone nobody wins.)
The handle and blade are not that great for working wood
also a lot of them are not full tang
>>
>>1144292
Neither?

Plant based oils will gum up over time, when exposed to air.

You want mineral oil, WD-40, graphite dry lubricant, or even lithium grease.
>>
>>1144263
Decent, not the greatest but will serve the purpose as long as you don't put too much stress on them while prying
>>
>>1141553
They can kind of work if the edge angle is the same as the sharpener angle but it will never give you a great edge
>>
>>1140368
You can take my shit any day papa bepis
>>
>>1144591
Yeah but I use mine on food mostly, I need something non toxic.
>>
>>1144597
Mineral oil, food safe, doesn't go rancid, multi use.
>>
>>1144597
As the above anon said, mineral oil is food safe.

You can find it in the laxatives section of your local grocery or drug store.

Good for rust protection, lubrication, and for when you have a hard time pushing out a problematic poopy.
