Putting bolsters on a EDC



Log in to see fewer ads
A few pics of the knife I'm working on right now. Putting stainless bolsters on this little EDC

Cut out the bolsters and drill them to match the blade. I try to pick things that flow together


After I dovetail each half of the bolsters I put the pins in and head out to the anvil. Lots of peening and it looks like a mess


Once I shape them a little they start to look better


Once I fit the elk up to the bolsters I think it's going to look fine


Yes sorta like this



Hopefully after a little sanding it'll look like this

I always look forward to seeing your latest creation. Absolutely beautiful as always. I need to buy a gift for my brother and one of your knives would be just the ticket. One of these days...
