Re: Nickel silver bolsters

Flitz is more abrasive than Simichrome, but they both have their uses. On nickle-silver or brass Simichrome is great, but it exposes new high shine metal which oxidizes more readily, so seal immediately with Renaissance or shoe polish (and yes only the price seems different.) For stainless, like bla...

JimBrown257, Variations on a Theme

When I drew this up I knew I wanted two knives, one for a friend, and one for me. I got the first knife, the dagger in buckeye burl. Before Jeremy started on the second one there was an ongoing discussion about the design theory behind Kris bladed knives and some very interested perspective on how t...

Re: Left handed sear help

Incorrect, Dave. There has to be an angle on the sear to clear the spring and blade. That angle is exactly the opposite on a left-handed knife. You're speaking of the angle that he!ps the sear climbing the ricasso so that drop into the hole. Sometime the holes are ramped as well. This angle also te...

Re: Left handed sear help

There is no difference in a left and right handed sear, you just have to mount to the other liner and put the sear hole in the other side of the blade, or drill the hole all the way through the blade.

Re: Photo adding dilemma

https://www.talkblade.info/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=24232 I wrote this quite a while ago. I'm using Imgbox instead of Photobucket now as they began to charge. Take a look at one of my recent posts with pictures and hit the double quote ("). This will let you see how it's used. You can copy and paste any...

Re: Another Havlin

Both are gorgeous and you and I are both intimately familiar with both Master builders. I actually prefer the lighter scales on the PLP, but that's like saying I like redheads and you like blondes! I'm certain Lucio DiBon provided the scales for both knives. The RP has hundreds of years of tradition...

Re: old frosolone? pick lock knife

As you know,oldies are not my forte. It's old, but not perfect. I'm thinking $600-700, but I don't know. Is it really a Piscatelli? Does that make it worth big bucks?

Re: On the hunt for an AGA Campolin 13" Batwing swinguard, ebony scales.

If all else fails, buy it in any scales and send to Rick Greene for a rescale. I have his contact info. He used to do work for Rick Giroux. He does gorgeous amboyna burl scales. Ebony should not be a problem.

Re: Kris Blade Shapes

Hey Sam,

I'm not much interested in having it built, but I am sure JimBrown257 would whip it out in short order. Did you see the post on the last two he built for me?

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...
