Re: Kris Blade Shapes

You know how it is with engineers; we can never quit messing with things. I thought about what Jeremy had said via email and what Jerry said here, and decided that I really needed a smoothed 5 hump version, a bit narrower (9/16" instead of 5/8"). I also changed the proportions a bit to 175, 287.5, 4...

Re: Kris Blade Shapes

https://images2.imgbox.com/03/20/Lc6Xnvmi_o.jpg Here's what I came up with. When you were describing the shape of the Rizzuto blade and the proportions you were working from the four hump, but when you were talking about not exceeding the bar stock size or the baseline grind you used a 6 hump. So, ...

Re: guests

I have been promoting the forums and a list of reference books through FB for years. I typically PM all the noobs requesting an email and then send boilerplate emails with links and explanations. Mostly they tell me that they tried to join but approvals were slow or non-existant. Worse, being unfami...

Kris Blade Shapes

A few days back I spoke about creating a Kris blade profile by superimposing a sine wave onto a symmetric blade and the possibilities of creating infinite variations based on the wavelength and amplitude of the sine wave. That is probably too technical for most folks to visualize, so here are some e...

Re: guests

I check in several times each day but there is nothing new to see. I have stopped posting any new stuff as it largely goes unread and uncommented. My group on Fecesbook, Artistic Switchblade Knives, has over 1000 members but probably 25 active ones. I mostly post there.

Re: Fantasy Dragon Sword Cane

Almost sure I know what this is. Do the letters CB appear on the hilt? It's a Conan the Barbarian fantasy sword, they sold for around $200 back in the day.

Dave, you should post a video of them firing. It's kind of a windshield wiper effect.
There are three videos in the start of this topic.

Extension Knives from JimBrown257

First off, let me say that I totally love working with Jeremy (JimBrown257) because he turns my crazy ideas into reality. The last two he has built for me are "extension" knives. That is, they have disproportionately long blades on shorter handles. When they are open, the look like regular 13's exce...
