I recently injured my arm so I'm unable to do anything. However if anyone has any questions I'd be able to answer them, before I was working on turning old chainsaw chains into knives and more decorative works

Why are chainsaw chain knifes a thing? does it look good?

> does it look good?

It is in fact the only reason to do it. All the different parts of the chain are made of different types of steel. Some have higher carbon, some have manganese, nickle, ect, ect. When you forge weld all of them together they still more or less exist except bonded together.

When you etch the finnished knive with an acid it will corrode the different types of steel at uneven rates, thus showing you the pattern. To be perfectly honest they are inferior to most known kinds of tool steels, these are mostly meant to be decorative pieces used for light to medium work.

For instance my father is a forester and has been since before I was even born. By nessesity he has used chainsaws a lot and worn out a lot of chains, which is where I obtained my supply. To him a knife made out of a tool he used and the wood he cut makes it the best knife he owns. People just don't want a knife, they also want something with a history.

Basically channels about blacksmithing, woodwork, and other such things that you can shill to filthy urban normies to try and get them interested in the stuff and turn back this tide of absolutely useless urban dwelling garbage that seems to compose the majority of people these days.

Are there any decent resources for handsewing? Most of what I've found is for a sewing machine or for intermediates, but no absolute-beginner stuff like proper stitches and practices.

If you're normie tier then King Of Random is good for teaching you that many things are within reason of doing but he is kind of dumb.

Also Adam Savage on youtube builds things and you can learn a lot of stuff about prop building, costume making, custom modding, and painting there.

Currently uploading a series of cosplay related books from a previous humble bundle.

anon to/aHHWCM

While you might not be interested in making replica swords or armor, you might find some of the techniques for installing electronics like LEDs, mold making, vacu-forming, and 3D printing right up your alley. Since cosplay is a very amateur-heavy hobby that includes a ton of different skills, these serve as great beginner's guides for getting into some of the trickier electronics stuff.

And maybe you do want to make swords and armor, so there's that too.

Lets discuss what people have made and are making. Post pics, designs, schematics etc.

This is a trench club I made modeled after nothing. It is probably not historically accurate. The cable is stuck in the handle with epoxy and just loops around a bar in the nut. The wire wrapping is clothes hanger wire and it is to provide stiffness.
