    Brass is fairly easy to work with, and of course better with the harder woods or another metal. I do inlay it prior to my final sanding or shaping so it will fit in tighter. I haven't tried it with my stone, as soapstone is too "crumbly" ha and ruin my whole day .
    Take care and if yoou can or do It is you know always show and tell.

    I rather like knives and have made the odd one now and then so found this really interesting.

    Have a couple of USA knives marked krllo Beautiful things!!! Can't find any history on the maker. They have high carbon steel blades that are razor sharp. Does anyone know of this maker?? Mine has has done its job on quite a few deer over the years.
    Glenn, send me a pic of your knives.. Like to seem.

    You did a grand job of dressing it up again.

    The big brass made me think of Kershaw. I'm toying with the idea to get a First Nations carver to engrave some totems in the brass on mine.
    Brian, I love to use brass inlays, and also some sea shell. I don't show much of my items Maybe one day.. and so Kai Japan yes it is. Was a joint product, to bad the handle failed. But for me a fun project.. In fact I had the idea to inlay the rib of the handle with about 1/8" line of brass. Ah well.
    Take care up there.

    HI all, I made a mistake on the wood, it is Purple heart. Via my Grandson who is nuts about the hardest wood he can get."it must have rubbed off on to him?". I did recieve this Kershaw model 1034 and it was made by Kershaw In Lake Oswego OR,( now defunk) my wife purchased it from a small store in 1977( after a bit of research) and "gave it to me through my sons " for a Christmas present.

    She showed me a photo of the presention yesterday.... I have looked it up on on the net, NLA and Ebay has one that is in good condition for 350 + I say good as it was used, mine never had a stone/strop to the blade nor had been carried on a belt. So that my friends, is my story and I'm stickin to it.
    Oh plus the wife says he thinks she paid about $55. for it.
    Cheers and be safe.
    Chuck

    Looks like it says Kershaw on the box. I have one of their modern knives....still made in the USA.

    I've used purple heart, but never red heart, is it hard as well? It certainly took a great finish. I had to laugh, your youngest at 55, where did time fly? My boy is 61 and my youngest, a girl, 49.

    I don't know if it is because from my grandfather to me, we were connected to a meatpacking plant, & it was a suggestion that you never gave anyone a knife, you made them pay 1ยข, or your friendship would be cut.?????????

    I'm sure your son will certainly treasure this knife, it looks to be a beauty
