Working knife. Broke tip and stuck on body filler. Reason I cant see paying to much for a tool.
A face you have to love.
And happy sixth birthday.
I think it snowed on her birthday just because she loves it.
Will it stop.
Yesterdays play. First time making back spacer and jimping. A lot easier in you tube videos. Mine not pretty.
Got this Friday. Did not get to mailbox until Sundaycensored:snow). After opening went into Halos,two hours later. I like the result.
***Disclaimer for the following***
This is a learning experience. It is not finished. If I did this again it would be with a full tang knife. Still sanding to do.
MTFatboy I do not plan on using this knife but still want to finish it. I am having a problem finding round bar locally. Where do you or any knife guys buy this and what size?
sswift, I'm loving your creativity! And the opinel turned out great!
I'm only just getting started with it myself, but I've looked at and/or bought supplies online at:
Crazy Crow Trading Post, and
Knife and Gun Finishing Supply
You should find them easily enough with Google.
AK Adventurer, FL Woods Bum, johnny five, do you have anything to add? Any recommendations on size? I assume, sswift, you are looking for pin stock? Personally, I'd go as small as you feel comfortable drilling and can find, or not pin this one altogether and just use epoxy.
I kind of like the look and really like the idea. Did you shape the handle with a sander?
Pops knife supply
Tru grit knife supply
You Could always look at your local plumbing supply store for tubing. ... You never know what you might find there.
sswift I'm dinging your work buddy keep it up....
Hope any of that info helps

I used band saw, file and sand paper.
I like it because it is free just time consuming. I have a sling shot planned next.
1/8 pin stock is easy to use and it's cheap. It really depends what you want to do with said project
Thank you. Do you order online or buy local. If so where? Also thanks to you and wife for likes.
Sorry reading my thread backwards. Saw reply.
I try to keep it local. . Or with small business. I have a knack for utilizing things I find. .. like copper tubing from refrigerator coolant tubes. ...I run into alot of odd things when I shop. do a brainstorm is this useful. . In which ways. .. Would it hold up. But I think online pop's is the way to go. He's a small business. With great customer service.
You can usually find an ACE hardware in most U.S. cities, they usually have a large selection of rods from copper to brass to stainless.. Most ACE stores are also franchises, and thus small businesses. I agree with johnny five as to finding materials in places you don't normally look for them. Once you know what you are looking for and work with it a few times, you will quickly start seeing it everywhere you go. Hobby shops are another good place to find rods made out of different metals. Good luck!
Mondays stuck at home EDC.
At least you're stuck in style!
I really love the look of that marbled backspacer. Very nice.
