Default Timken Made in USA (made 2x)

So about 5 years ago I started this project.. I wanted to save the Timken made in USA and wanted it to be legible.

I recently went to the ABANA Iron to Art conference to teach and show off the demo trailer..

While there I got to meet some really neat people and do a demo on making a tight hinge eye, forging a 5 layer damasucs knife all the wrong ways and have it come out right, a Swedish brush axe, and an Arrow pattern thu cusp latch and thumber.

While I was there I became inspired and got started on a roll of knife making.

This knife was made and given away to someone I thought was worthy.

My original plan was to make it a full on skinner.. I had to move all the material from one side of the blade to the other to keep the "Timken made in USA" on the outside.

Lost some material when I pushed the blade back over.. Originally the blade edge would have the Timken upside down..

My first thought looking at the title was "Timken is still made in the US?" Nice Work! What material are the rivets made from? Hard to tell with camera color chameleonism...

Nice work. I like the offset you put in so the handle would work out like a normal knife.

Reminds me I have an integral I started to make that I put a dog leg in so it would have a wood scale on one side and the metal tang on the other. I didn't like how the transitions were coming out when I started grinding and it got stuck in cabinet.
