I repaired an old hunting knife I received 20+ years ago.

Image

These Martiini knives were pretty popular in europe back then. It was a two knife set and actually the first somewhat decent fixed blade I ever got. The handle had finally broken off a few months ago.

I tried to drill through the tang but that steel is way to tough, must be around 60HRC and that is nearly undrillable. I had a bit for stainless steel biting at this for 4 minutes, using a drill press and low rpm and it didn't leave as much as a dent.

So it was epoxy only. I put in a piece of aluminium as a spacer that had the same thickness as the blade.

Image

The bolts are actually 3mm screws, I tapered the holes in the scales. More for optical reasons, the epoxy holds everything well together.

Image

Now, I need to make a sheath for this thing.

Tatanka means buffalo. Your friend gave you a buffalo. That's all I learned from repeated watchings of Dances with Wolves. :clap:

Yes, in the Lakota Sioux language.

At least he gave me the pointy end of the buffalo, not the poopy end.

Just got 2 new knives
1. Rat 1
Positives- came very sharp, blade has a good belly for slicing and is FFG, AUS 8 is a decent steel in the price range, blade is well centered and there is no movement.
Negatives- thumbstuds seem misplaced meaning it's a lot harder to open than my spyderco or kershaw knives, no grip on these handles( they are way to smooth). That coupled with a small cut out guard leaves me disappointed. Everyone seems to like these but it's not my cup of tea. I do like the blade itself just everything else is a problem.
Image
2. Opinel Carbon No 8
Positives- extremely light weight(1.6 OZ), a classic gentleman's folder, the handle feels good in the hand, blade is perfect for everyday tasks and is FFG with a good belly, the blade came sharp.
Negatives- it's smaller than I thought based on the pictures, as I chose the carbon blade I am gonna have to keep it oiled, would be better if the wood was recessed for the nail nick, slow to engage due to design.

That opinel is probably as good as dozens of other more pricey blades in the thread.
I don't think you need to oil it just give it a patina with mustard or tomatoe sauce or whatever.
To open search for coup de savoyard ..for the traditional method.
My favourite size is the 7 9 and 12.

Yea, I know about the classical opening method for the Opinel but even then it's slow, but that's okay its about as fast as a Buck 110. I used Vinegar to patina the blade, this time I didn't boil the vinegar while I did it and it made the patina a little lighter in color than the Carbon Mora I did a while back.

So bought a new knife a Manix 2 Lightweight with CTS BD1 steel. I like the light weight and I wanted a different locking mechanism than liner, frame, or back lock. This one has the ball bearing lock. I traded in my Delica as I preferred the ergos of this knife as it fits in the hand just like a Dragon Fly 2 but with a bigger blade and handle. Well thoughts on the knife? Also what do you think of the steel as I have never owned this type before. I use the spyder co sharpmaker to keep my knives sharp.

1907 Enfield Bayonet with Quillion
It's a reproduction but a good one I paid the extra $ to have it sharpened. High Carbon steel and looks good on My Ishapore 7.62*51 Enfield.
