Hello guys, i recently had to order some 1/8th inch 1075 carbon steel for a couple customer blades, since its cheaper to buy in bulk i ended up buying a 72 inch section rather than just grabbing the length i needed, and well, i decided ill make a bunch of small knives because 1/8th inch steel tends to warp and do crazy things over longer lengths. Ive drew up several EDC and hunting styled blades, but id like to get some opinions, what would you guys like to see me make? More boot daggers, More fantasy looking stuff, open to suggestions.
It is said that what is called the Spirit of an Age is something to which one cannot return. That this spirit gradually dissipates is due to the world's coming to an end. In the same way, a single year does not have just spring or summer. A single day, too, is the same. For this reason, although one would like to change today's world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation.- hagakure

When they say butterfly knife I'm not sure they mean balisong . Maybe the wide bladed wing chun knives ?
And ye shall know it by this sign.... thy swords shalt be split asunder , and cast down, even unto the Earth. Thy swords shalt be broken , even as thy old ways art broken, and if a man would be made whole again, he must arise verily, and lift a new sword to the sky... the old shalt be no more , and the new shalt be born, in spirit and in steel....

heres what ive got so far...the 2nd and 3rd one down from the top are spoken for already grandpa came over while i was drawing up blade designs and decided he wanted those 2 for christmas. 2nd from the top will also be made for A.Jordan who commissioned me a while back.

here they are roughed out with bevels ground, ive since cleaned them up, trued up all the edges and grinds, rough polished, and clayed them up for heat treat. Next installment...Post Quench pics. But i probably wont get to that until tomorrow or the next day. gotta let the clay dry up all the way through.
Katsu: Hey Merch! Just wanted you to see this

RufusScorpius: Not so good. Had a big argument with my housemates. They said the place was haunted, I said I've lived there 183 years and never saw a ghost.

nerdthenord: Also, how you doing Scorp? Doing ok myself.

nerdthenord: It's pretty cool that water can be neutral, an acid, or a base without changing any of it's physical properties, but instead the theoretical definition of acidity used.

nerdthenord: I do love that when you talk about acids and based with a chemist though you have to specify what theory and definition of acids you are using. It's very easy to teach and understand the PH Scale, but it's not nearly as simple in real life

nerdthenord: True, it can't be completely dismissed in extreme conditions. I personally doubt it would be "Normal" matter, with protons, neutrons, and electrons though. Might be exotic matter like quark matter. Big disclaimer, I am not a theoretical Chemist either.

RufusScorpius: I wonder if there's another planet where their swords are made from Unseptbium and the hobbyists there are arguing about the properties of it's various alloys?

RufusScorpius: the existence of elements beyond the 7th period can't be dismissed. Like the theory of proton decay, we don't have the technology to devise an experiment to confirm or deny it. Esoteric elements MAY exist around neutron stars, magnetars, and etc.

AndiTheBarvarian: Nuclear physicists are the nuclear constituents' accessories to deliberate about themselves!

nerdthenord: There’s a reason I’m not a nuclear physicist lol

treeslicer: No, it's because proton charge repulsion overwhelms the strong nuclear force due to the increasing nuclear diameter. The nucleus is too fat rather than too heavy.
