    Just finish this hunter for a client, it was the first time at making a hidden tang with different mediums,
    used bamboo, copper, leather, and antlers...the butt bolster was screwed on using Dan's method of welding a screw at the end of the tang...well brazing in this case. Brazing is now my new favorite thing..:)
    and no the sheath in the background was just used to prop the knife its not the one that went with it..lol
    And now on to the next project!
    P.S. the sanding rash on the butt end was taken cared of, after I took the picture.

    Very nice. I'm also a fan of brazing but some day I have to get a small oxy/acetolyne torch. My standard propane torch doesn't get hot enough for a larger tang like my last bowie.

    For soldering, brazing and braze welding aim for the tightest fit-up possible. Unlike welding joints with gaps end up with a substantially weaker joint, two machined surfaces clamped tightly can achieve upwards of 100 ksi tensile strength. Where as a sloppy joint can be as low as 12-40 ksi.

    No problem I will pass along anything welding or joining related I can especially if it helps someone make a better knife
