Thumbs up Need Help with a Project !

For a Blade I am Making for "Boomer" my Brother

that just Passed away His Dad is a Retired SSG from the US Army and has

made a request of me to make a Knife in Honor of his service in the

Military and for him .

I am Not ashamed I will Seek help from my fellow Members
here to help me

with this project, I can carve in Bone very well as well as Fit and

Finish. However, I will be seeking help to pull this off to Honor my

brother as well my Mom and Dad to make a blade and Sheath worthy of the

Honor of my brother's Service in the Military and his Very Young
Life.

I have a 1 1/4 Thick X1 1/4 Thick X 8 inch Billet made .(If Needed it will need to be Hammered into a Usable Billet/Blade)

I am looking to make a Bowie style Coffin Handle So the
blade can be engraved with Boomers full name, Military Service Emblem, and
Dates

If there a few Bladesmiths, leather working, and Engravers that can help me out please post here
& /or pm me to help me out .

Thank you and Best Regards

Sam

I have some small (<1/2") actual meteorites and you could mount them in the pommel. These are basically round so you would have to make a pommel design to accommodate it. Let me know if I can help. ...Teddy
