This is the last of my FiF stuff. It's dominated my week, but now I need to get back to working on Blade Show inventory.

A washed-out look at the push knives I did for the first challenge. They can actually be seen better in the reflections.

The katzbalger in its hideous glory:

My second take on the guard. Didn't like how the first one fit, so abandoned it before I finished out the quillions.

Image

And my second take on the handle since I ground through the side into the channel for the tang on the last day. So many things had to be done several times on this that I named it "der doppleschwert". The pommel was forged from a piece of pipe with the end cap oxy/acetylene welded on. The TeroTuf of the handle fits down into the pommel and the flared tube rivet goes through pommel, TeroTuf, and tang.

Image

And finally, a YouTube video featuring myself and fellow FiF champion Tobin Nieto (season 2, episode 8, Cutlass) reflecting on the show, our experiences with it, and answering common questions and criticisms. It's as long as an episode of FiF, but I think it's both entertaining and informative.

Just happened to be home and flipping through channels when I saw this show come on so I watched it. I laughed hysterically when I noticed that one of the participants was someone I had come across online. And then you took a snack break. And then you kicked some butt. Well done. Your humility coupled with your workmanship and expertise will certainly earn you a lot of fans. Gonna tweet about your site one of these days. I wish you Much continued success...

Thanks, Asymetryczna!

The guy running the scales at the junkyard recognized me from the show today. :D Of course, my buddy Tobin, who won the cutlass episode back in season 2, had a couple of guys at a convenience store recognize him this morning. :mrgreen:
