    Beautiful sight! Let me know how you feel about the edge when you’re done. I actually put that knife through the paces on about 20 rabbits and it was still sharp enough to shave.

    Feels like cutting through the sternum dulled it up a bit. No biggie.

    To me, it looks kinda like torn lace draped over a dark blade.

    Its really like some alien camo.
    It could look tough or delicate.

    The handle choice could be very significant in the final overall look.

    Question: how much fat do you mix in with your ground venison quarters?

    Very nice!

    A friend of mine uses two chopped up cooked slices of bacon per 1 lb of venison. I asked him why cooked? He said, "that's what the recipe says, :D"

    That’s a cool design. I have never seen a shape like that. Is it original or does it exist in history somewhere? Would you mind sharing more pictures of the hilt and handle? I would love details, lol.
    5160 steel?

    Yep, 5160.

    It is a historical design, commonly referred to as a reverse Falchion. It is relatively rare, but there are 22 examples in medieval artwork of this type of sword, with a sharpened, inward curving edge, and two surviving examples in museums:

    This is the original that I based my blade off: Screen Shot 2022-07-31 at 11.29.25 PM.jpg
    My pommel is another historical design, called 'cocked hat pommel', used 13-14th century.

    I made a short video showing most of the steps of construction, it has some close ups of the hilt towards the end:

    That’s pretty nice to do that little video. I admire your talent. I’m getting inspired to consider trying a sword maybe! In the video it looks like your anvil wants to do a slow dance, lol. Are the pommel and hilt also 5160? Or mild steel? Another thing I like to see is a guy who works alone and does the work by hand. There’s not a lot of us doing that. Sometimes I dream of having a machine shop!
    Keep posting your stuff!

    Pommel and guard are stainless steel from a gasket that was once part of the Alaska pipeline.

    Going to be reaching out to Benchmade. Have owned my Claymore less than a year and just lost the 2nd screw from it. After the 1st screw came out, they sent me a bag of spares, and I then checked and tightened screws.

    I really don't abuse or use this knife much so I'm pretty disappointed to have lost another screw :(

    It’s always a bummer when we spend good money on something nice that doesn’t work out.
    Almost sounds a bit like a lot of 3rd gen tundra buyers, lol.

    Seems like a dab of blue loctite would keep those screws from walking out.

    Well... I'll be doing that now and I guess I'll go thru and remove every screw and dab the loctite. But for spending what you do on a Benchmade, I shouldn't have to do anything.

    Not sure I agree. Proper maintenance and keeping everything in tip top shape is the owner’s job. Especially with folders. Using it, taking it in and out of your pocket every day, opening and closing it, this is all normal wear and tear and requires normal care and maintenance. You’ll dull your knife, stress the pivot, add a bunch of lint and dirt, and yes—even work the screws loose. Just from normal use!

    Most knife makers include a bit of blue or purple loctite or even teflon tape on their screws during final assembly. I’m pretty sure that Benchmade does this. But even then, if you use the knife often enough, it’s going to require you to keep up on maintaining it. That includes sharpening the edge, lubing the pivot, keeping the blade oiled, and/or tightening screws, etc.

    If you hardly ever use the thing, and the screws are just walking out on their own, I would agree that maybe final assembly wasn’t done properly or something. If they sent you screws no questions asked, that was pretty solid of them to do.

    This is my dissapointment, the knife has just been carried 99% of the time and I've had 2 screws come out. I do understand that as an owner its my job to maintain and check the knife regularly but when I'm not using a knife much, it's easy to over look checking it.
    But maybe I need to do that more, its just odd since I've never had this issue in the past 10 years of carrying a knife daily.
    But Benchmade was good about the initial replacement screw and sent me a full replacement set.

    I revisited this handle yesterday. I really liked it as it was but it was too slick and would be slippery when covered with blood. This is the way I was originally thinking of grinding the micarta B63B2571-1749-49C9-A67A-26DD22E9C645.jpgE98D8ACD-8D39-47DA-9B75-F9FD07C039B1.jpg
