Getting the itch for a new one...
No MKMs ???... sort of curious... how's that itch?... and what's kind of pointy sharp thing is it itching for?...
what do you need as soon as it gets warm im going to start making again?????
A nice machete! It doesn't have to be full size- a short one would be nice since I have a bunch of good full sized ones.
Spring steel would be great!
Another idea would be the longest Tanto blade (14 or so inches) that you could fit into your heat treat oven. O2 tool steel, differentially heat treated with heat shielding paste, etc...
Everybody always tells me I ask for too much.
If anybody ever starts making hand-forged gladius swords without too much of a bulbous counterweight, sign me up for one. Those babies would sell like a blonde prostitute in Asia.
Sorry took me a bit to get back.
I think something big, a sword would be cool, I could get behind one of those broker.
If your into CUSTOM, I have a Friend who is a Master BladeSmith... You can get anything you want...
i will put some of my work later like i say it has to warm up lol
but i will see what i can make like a camp knife or machette
Seriously, if any of you guys make knives and would like to make some money, you are missing out. Big time.
Let me provide you with an example.
Go to YouTube. Create an account if you haven't already. Make a few videos about your knives. Play music if you don't want to talk. Use good lighting. Make friends.
Next, head over to Gear Bastion and start an account for free: Gearbastion Artisan Home
I will even give you a few YouTube folks who are into knife making, forging and the like and are very good people, just to help you out a bit...

What does all this mean? Simple. Some of these guys and many others are selling their knives quite easily. In fact, let's look at Doberman Knives' latest.
He listed the knife yesterday. I missed the email. Guess what? Already sold. It wasn't cheap, either. He said it sold in about 18 minutes after listing it. Nice knife...
Just saying. If I had any inclination to have some fun with this, I would. I am into leather currently. =) Maybe some day. Leather is so much fun!
Ya, don't forget to advertise here
Just got a coke forge and am hoping to start playing with it soon, I want to make one of those woodsman pals, not sure if anyone has seen them but they're like a cross between a machete and bolivian hatchet, Ive found info on the net and have a friend on the rendevous circuit but if anyone has tips I would be gratefull.

Hi Daniel Im glad you made it here.
Id like to talk to you about a gladius sword or Katana.
For those that didnt know Daniel is a custom knife maker @ Custom Knives and Steel by Roeder and Pyron,.
I knew I shouldn't have looked at this thread! Beautiful work!! I have a thing for knives like most women have for shoes.
Beautiful knives! I think the railroad spike knife is just as fantastic as the stand!
Thank you Quigley for the support, I got your message and am excited to talk to you about what you're looking for. I would like to call and talk some time if that's alright. If so just pm me your number. Thank you!
Thank you CRC and Broker for the kind words!
SOMEBODY PLEASE MAKE THIS
Murder (Tactical Gladius) Please call before ordering
FOR LESS THAN 1 ARM and 2 LEGS, please.
I like this one but you are so right, the price is steep...
Like the blade profile on the Murder but not the handle so much. Would have to hold it in the hand to see how it felt.
