Now that the sub zero temperatures have passed I finally got some forge work done. This knife has a ball starter on the back of the handle, pewter bolster, brass pin(peened over), and a blade forged from an old file. The sheath still needs to be made up.
This is a A.Verner or Bucks county style rifle I just wrapped up. It has a 44" 50 caliber A weight Colerain barrel, a L&R flintlock, curly maple stock, and brass mounts. Incised carving a bit simpler than some of the originals but true to the style. Time to shoot!
This 40 caliber rifle has an A weight, swamped rice barrel, Chamber's late Ketland lock, Davis double set triggers, forged iron mounts, pewter nose cap, steel ramrod, and is stocked in curly maple. It has yet to be fired, so the front sight is most likely tall.
I just finished this bone handled knife. It has a thin 3 1/4" forged blade stamped with my mark, a pewter bolster, and steel pommel. The knife measures 7" overall. The vegetable tanned sheath is dyed dark, sewn with waxed linen thread, and accepts a 3" belt. This is razor sharp and the blade is about as thick and flexible as a fillet knife.
