Busy busy

I have been really, really busy lately. I am finishing up school at Fox Valley Tech., working as and Intern there and looking for a job. I have been able to do some work in the shop a little bit here and there, but not nearly as much as I would like to. I may be working at a place that I would be getting off work at 2:00 pm, so I would be able to get in the shop after work more.
I have some photos of stuff that I have worked on and will try to find the time to post them soon.

More knives

Here are a few knives I have had laying around. They started to ask me to finish them, so I started. The dagger I just forged, it is the first double-edged knife I have forged.

The first knife in the photo is an ordered kitchen knife. I also have an order in for a Bowie knife. The second and third knives are the choices for the Bowie style knife.

Here is a kitchen knife that I made for my wife.

I went to a Red deer ranch and got a bunch of antlers for making knives.

Blacksmith knifes.

New knife done

I got a new knife done. It was ordered as a present for someone's father.
This knife has a 6.5" blade. The handle is deer antler with a buffalo horn spacer.

I have been thinking of starting a list of subscribers. If you would like to be on my subscribers list please email me at
Please include full name, email address, and mailing address.
There may or may not be extra perks to being on my list.
P.S. I have another knife to post pics of but I don't have the photos handy, they will be coming soon.

Back at it

I was off working on restoring a 1968 Ford Bronco. The best off road truck ever!
I know this isn't the best photo but I will try to get some better ones soon.
I have also been going to school at FVTC. I am taking Production welding, which includes Fabrication classes and bluprint reading. They have lots of toys there. It is so much fun.
Just the other day I hardened and tempered 4 knives.

Two knives

This one is not quite finished. I still need to put an edge on it. The handle is rosewood.

This is my first folding knife. I think it turned out ok. The handle is deer antler.

Fish and Bike

I decided to make another Fish. I got a lot of great comments about the first one and just the other day a guy told me that if I still had it he would buy it. Here is the beginning of the new one.
I am thinking of putting this fish on ebay when it is done. What do you think, should I try it?

Here is a chopper I put together. I just barley had enough hardware laying around to finish it.

The wine is not finished quite yet. I need to color the leaves and seal it, then it will be done.
