Well, I got started on my entry. Thought it would be fun to shoot a youtube video of the forging process. Some of you guys wanting to forge cable might find it interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQFsHhfdlPs

This is great. Been trying to dip my toe into the water of forging and learn a little. This is very helpful. Can't wait to see the grinding/finishing video. Thanks for posting this!!

I plan to start my KITH knife today. Hopefully I'll get the design and materials sorted out. My plan is to use either 440C or AEB-L, and a synthetic handle material like micarta or G10, and titanium pins. Heat treat will most likely be done by Peters, or another professional service.
Most often I start with 1/8", but I'm thinking .093 or .0875 this time.

Epic fail! All I accomplished this weekend was to further confuse myself as to which design I'd like to try. My goal for this project is to up my skill level with 1 or 2 new techniques, but still present a knife worthy of no less than a B+, when graded on a professional standard.
The only solution I could come up with is to make one each of my three favorite designs, pick a favorite and make 3 more, all as practice pieces, upping the skill level and techniques each time. I'm an avid bird hunter, so I'll have no problem finding guys who will test them out for me.
I'm open to suggestions and critique, if anyone disagrees with this method?
Thanks
