Mora carbon steel blade / blank 6" options on building a grip

Recommended Posts

Having found a quality blade although I am not a tang knife fan, having one is not a sin.


Full tang knifes are stronger but of course that depends on their material all metal can have voids or oother unseen

weaknesses that untill the blade is under stress cannot be known, that is when it will brake / snap.


First I did not know the look I was going for, stacked material like leather washers or hollow drilled bone metal washers

even some stone and man made materials.


I think I have decided to go with a copper tubing body custom cut hand guard and use soft twisted copper wire and solder it wrapped on the copper tubing and a simple rounded cap nut.


So it is off to the hardware store one thing about copper fittings and plumbing supplies there are a lot of possibilities

crush washers can be a wavy circular and if your patient and use some epoxy you can make a frilled spacer.


Hand guard first that locks the rest of the stack next the frilled stack of epoxyed crush washers and not to get the right size tubing and using a power drill twist some copper wire If I want more texture I can flatten it or block it.

unless I want to make and indexing station out of wood to disect the angles wich I don't I think I will cheat and solid wrap the handle.


A tang blade is much like a rat tail file in fact a broken file is a good base for a knife if the body gives you enough length for a blade depends on where you live as in all things a short blade is a great ostyer clam knife.

Ice picks and other metal items can be used for skewers marrowing bones and turning intestines wrong side out to clean them to make casing for sausages a skewer with a small hook is the easiest way to do this.


I think I am going to do this as a picture project I am not very patient I just DO things and do not really care for the stopping and starting to take pictures and It seems I alway miss a step.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
