Harpoon Hunter – First blade on the 2×72 grinder
This is my first time doing a swedge/harpoon tip, and also my first time doing hand filed serrations. I’m loving my 2×72 already. Things move so quickly and the finishing belts make getting ready for heat treat a breeze. Keep checking back for more progress. Time to coat it up for heat treat!
1945 Disston US Military Machete
This blade was my neighbors fathers. He gave it to me one day saying “Here..maybe you can make a knife out of this.” So, after cleaning up the markings and finding out it was from World War 2, I’m going to clean it up (Leaving all it’s original patina), add some new handle scales and return it to him. Pics below show how it looked when I got it. I will post pictures after I’m done with it.
