My latest custom knife project.

Wow.. it is really hard to drill a hole in hardened steel.

Carbide is the only thing that works.. others claim it will work like cobalt, but not a chance.

anyway knife came out nice.

handle made from exotic Redheart wood and stainless steel pins

That is one mean looking knife! I like the wavy pins, saw tooth filing, and diamond piercings. Great overall shape and details.

Very nice design and execution! Why not drill/cut holes before hardening?

An old master blacksmith told me the easiest way to do it was to punch the holes when forming the knife,
but he always planned ahead and knew what he was doing, which may have been why his knives were so
much better than mine.

Exotic looking, but very cool.

Wow! Very nice.
This knife would be a great piece to show off while cutting patches for my muzzleloader.

Excellent work! I too have had a devil of a time drilling hardened steel. The knife blade I was dealing with came to me ready to be hilted, and the tang had been drawn back to soften it some, but still – dang! Whenever I can plan for it I look for knife blanks to be pre drilled as they are made. (don’t make my own blades).
