Hi, I'm Knapper (Ben) from Arkansas. I joined primarily because I love to make sgian dubhs and am working towards larger blades. I figure some folks here might have some good information for me, tips, etc. I'll post pictures of my latest creation, which is a piece of white-tailed deer antler with sterling silver fittings and a bog oak pommel. I also make traditional pieces, but this one is nice I think. The blade is a UK made dress blade. I haven't got the equipment to forge, grind and heat treat blades yet, but maybe one day. Anyway, it's going to be fun looking around this site.
