Knife build --why not

10 posts in this topic

I had bought a couple of Morakniv #3 carbon steel 5.9 inch  blades .

 

This one is going to be a fun project, my intension is to make the handle from a extruded rod like a screwdriver handle and a cap nut skull crusher.  Nothing fancy and the sheath made from Kydex of a companion color to the rod I will have to do a bit of turning of the rod to make a guard.

 

Because of knife laws I have to embed the blade .5 inches into the rod so it will measure 5.5 inches -.

I do have a real problem with ridiculous laws there are no end to the objects that people have murdered others with but the judicial system hardheadedly sticks by contrived laws that NEVER alter the criminals behavior like words on paper have some magical properties -- well only for the living criminal if we can catch prove and convict even then they are usually unrepentant just pissed that they got caught and the victim is still dead or maimed / disfigured for life.   This is proof that the judicial system is not for the victim it took many years for a victims rights advocacy to become part of our system and still we have problem with the victims getting justice.

 

On to the Build this seems straight forward I will order my extruded rod 1 1/2 nch  in diameter depends on the shape as I said I will need to turn it and shape it I think I will do that on my drill press and use files.

Acraglass is one of the best bedding bonding agents so I will use that to bond the tang in the rod. and I need to use a die to make the threads for the cap nut I have an assortment of those.

 

Kydex is great for forming as long as you have a teflon plate and some forming tools like a metal rod tapered to open and I use different pliers like needle nose to hold roll and form the pattern needs to be just like a leather sheath all the belt loop and retaining detents need to be tested I use cardboard and glue to build and test then place it on the Kydex and trace my pattern to it with a marker cutting this is a chore it is very hard so you may have to notch it and cut it in sections or nibble with drill bits dikes and shears I do not like to heat it too many times it has a negative effect on the polymer and it had a surface pattern that gets marred if you finagle with it too much.

 

I use copper rivets to seal the edge belt clips I leave open to slip over the belt a jag in the end keeps it from sliding or pulled off I leave a bit for a tab to push to pull it off my belt depends on the design but it can be worn inside or out there are many examples on the net just copy the design part that you want.

I think I will have a slot for a pen style diamond steel sharpener and a ferro rod as this blade is carbon steel it will work fine with a ferro rod.

 

I have plenty of knives but now and again I just want a inside project the other blade I will do a combo of antler and leather washers I saw some poly faux tortoise shell and amber I think that would look good as spacer material  on black bull hide washers between I also have some cape buffalo born hell if I dont like it I can always keep the stuff for another build of some sort--maybe a screwdriver  B)

OK I decided today to quit procrastinating on this build so I had some Mahogany and some cape buffalo horn cut tapered and drilled the handle then section it to set in buffalo horn got it glued waiting for it to soft set so I can stick it in the vice once it is dry -- tomorrow I will take it out and redrill the bore as glue will have backfilled a bit and I want a good bore to hold the epoxy

Well I don't get it this tells me I only allowed 1 upload of X size is that per day year ?????

The piece in the background is cape buffalo horn I was toying with the idea of deer antler but I can still do that later as all I have to do is cut again and insert / glue in the horn. 

I decided to go the wood and horn as my poly handle material is MIA on the road somewhere I have other blades both are  Hubertus good German steel about 3.5 inch blades one a clip point the other a drop point   small but a good project knives I think I will do one stacked leather with deer horn and the other poly rod f and when I get the stuff.

thanks a bit different the wood and cape buffalo was more a dress knife the screwdriver handle is much more durable the length is good enough for filleting fish and being carbon steel it sharpens easy and holds an edge.

    • I appreciate the videos P210sig. I feel I need to express that we are no longer in Kansas anymore what was even 10 years ago is NOT now all of us are being survieled, the Internet was given away the SHADOW government is willing to start a civil war and kill Americans and yet the lame stream media is still got their ligs glued to their azz. It has been stated by insiders that the news can no longer be controlled by the deep state and that they are scared out of their minds that Internet news like Drudge Report  Infowars people like Roger Stone and a handful of American patriots like Navy Seals that have broken out on the Internet there are ex agents who have like a deer in headlights realize that they were manipulated and used to surrender our sovereignty to a global government, Funny thing is the U.N. thinks they are the one and they are just as clueless as everyone else, Once the deep state takes the helm this ship of fools will find that the real powers think this ship is a submarine and take her to the bottom.  War is a means to an end and the end is to depopulate the citizens (kill off Americans) breed disillusionment foster anger and futility among the population and divide and conquer using race, financial disparity, and age.  They are trying to kill us all Amrica is the ONLY country that can fight off globalism the one world order and devolving into a muslim anarchy.  The muslims think they are going to rule the U.N. thinks they got it and our deep state thinks they have it and reality is none of them do.  It seldom happens but people that wear themselves out fighting the wrong people are weakened to a point they can not fight at all and are easily taken over. Here is the problem with being a socialist Marxist Leninist Stalinist, Maoist Che' Geverra follower or an atheist or agnostic --- YOUR BLIND TO THE PROBLEM and that is there is nothing new under the sun PERIOD ! when people become arrogant and greedy the next and only step is EVIL and in order to maintain power and wealth they will lie steal and murder anyone who gets in their way and they always have toadies will to lick their shoes and one day kill them off and take the reigns of power and be as or more brutal than the b@stard or wh@re before them. Here is a news flash Venezuela is listed as 63 of the world most fragile countries LMAO there are 62 WORSE ? Guatemala is 61 Honduras 68 Nicaragua 71 Bolivia 75 ????? LOOK OUT WE America destabilized these countries interfered in their governments and now they are all leaning toward socialism or a variant if we do no wall up our border the TSUNAMI of people running from civil war and events like happening in Venezuela will blow up and we will be fighting along our southern boarder !  OUR Government has as General Westley Clark stated so eloquently that our plan under Bush was to take out & middle eastern sovereign nation states and IMPOSE democracy on a people that cannot and will not understand or accept it is against their religion history and educational system PERIOD Europe is going to find out too damn late they have allowed themselves to be invaded by a hostile force it will act as if it is divided all the while usurping the vote installing leaders under the guise that they can only control understand and create organizations to help them assimilate like the muslim brotherhood LMAO etc etc etc....... If we had 100,000 immigrants that had syphilis small pox HIV un-treatable Tuberculosis whooping cough Hantavirus  and a whole litany of others including Ebola would you and I do mean YOU let them in well if your for open boarders you have and it has killed thousands of children not to mention the gangs and child molesters and rapists murderers and thieves from every nation if they are not vetted that is what vetting is for and like Ellis Island we need to see if they are harboring a FREAKIN' disease that will kill us and our children ! If you are for overthrowing a legally elected official that demands that laws already enacted be enforced up and to the letter of the law your a anarchist traitor turncoat ignorant fool and those are the least of your problems especially if your not in office because "THEY" have an agenda to use illegals of all nationalities to vote for them and if you bother to look at how they treat US how stupid are YOU to work for them.  In Houston Texas the city is planning to CUT retirement for fire fighters police ambulance and teachers by HALF and once the retiree dies the benefits to the spouse and now that includes GLBTQ spouses will get their spousal benefit CUT HALF AGAIN ! so this is a war on those that can and do most of the heavy lifting and all the dirty work while the azzholes that polish a chair with their azz and run their mouth are cutting real heroes pay checks.  The government is now going to demand that retired military veterans take retirement or disability not both and only 5 years of health care LMAO and now there are 250 organizations that take in money for veterans because our Government lied and they will cut medicare and medicaid but they got trillions to fight a never ending war and a few want to go to war with Russia on both sides of the Isle LMAO----- and that is the only damn bipartisan vote you could get a up vote on. War and Conflict obscures focus so they can rob us blind.  It is a foregone conclusion to me that the muslims are going to wipe each other out all we are doing is making money selling weapons to all sides our leader talking trash while we buy AK's and ammo and funnel it to them under humanitarian aid all the while it is a test bed for new weapons systems and spying technology !  Does anyone really think that the same government that listened into Minister Merkles the Russian ambassador's and overheard Osama Bin Ladin phone as well as Pablo Escobar's phone did not know about OH lets say the Boston incident ? even when they were given a heads up by the Russians ? how about all the rest of this sh*t people on the WATCH list and they plan and commit acts and we do not know ? REALLY ... Well get ready for censorship as the Internet is no longer in our control get ready for people to die especially those on the right in media who have the b@lls to espose and tell the truth Rodger Stone as been poisoned unsuccessfully but more recent his vehicle was T-boned ON PURPOSE. the total rage of people against Trump and their willingness to call for social unrest resist lawful authority and even undermine the 1st amendment for their own selfish  means they have state police as body guards money that we pay them to commit treason on WE THE PEOPLE, I notice Nancy Pelosi id not like it when she was heckled and shouted down at a public meeting when any group want special privilege or refuses to work together they are nobody's friend but to themselves.  
    • listen close you'll catch about a hundred CLUES as to why the world and RECENT history as we know it is a LIE
    • Their are 2 members in my shooting club that own a Desert Eagle . One in 357 & the other in 50 A&E ( Action Express ) Ive shot them both several times. They were a blast to shoot. Really liked the 50 A&E . Not for the recoil friendly that's for sure. The owner of the 50 said to me at one time that he put 20 grains of powder into one loaded cartridge that he Hand loaded.  If you ask me 20 grains of powder, that's a Shotgun load. If I ever decided to buy a Desert Eagle, the 50 cal would be the ticket.  The 50 cal DE is nicely suited to the design of the firearm if you ask me,  the 44 & 357 magnum not so much so. I've shot all 3 calibers at one time. JMHO .
    • Watching the news (really should avoid that)  but they are using Ketamine as an antisuicide medication and the user says it keeps her from committing suicide DUH and chronic pain does not make a person suicidal ?  I have friends that have had multiple surgeries to stop chronic pain some with no success or limited success. I for one feel the AMA and the FDA use less than scientific methods and allow certain doctors much more leeway to function everything can be addictive there are people who are addicted to eating laundry soap some people cut themselves or body dismorphia. IMHO it is reasonable to suspect a person is overusing medication when request for refills mount or their blood test show higher amounts than normal so we have controls I guess using an ID to track will help. Better living through chemistry I believe in it not as abuse of a drug but use to control pain and allow people to have a life, Ketamine if it is useful use it I do not see a problem with pot for people with life threatening diseases I do think as other drugs we cannot totally trust doctors because some will prescribe without care just for the money and there need to be limitations on operating vehicles people need relief but do not need to endanger others IMHO.
