Turning down the diameter of a piece of Twist Damasteel rod for a future build with the help of @shon_ko.motors and his lathe

Experimenting with making torx heads for custom pivot screws

Restocking my sandpaper cabinet, can't have too much sandpaper, use it like it doesn't cost money 🍻

The auction starts in six hours

All done,
Polish Boomerang Damascus blade.
Black Timascus scales and collars.
Zirconium bolsters, backspacer and pivot screws.
Titanium liners and hidden hardware.

Yesterday I was in the shop until midnight, I finished the blade but I ended up changing the blade finish at the last minute, the blade was supposed to be etched dark with fine nickel lines but I didn't like how it etched so I went with a deep etch and polished finish which as you probably know by now is my favorite finish for Damascus.
The lighting wasn't good enough to take a proper video but this one will be good enough to show the blade.

The auction will start on Saturday at 5PM EDT and will run for 24 hours, more info and better photos and videos will be posted later today.

Some details on the backspacer and now only thing left is to finish the blade.

Last few steps, sand blasted the liners and inner screws.

That's it for today, just need to finish the liners and blade and it'll ready for the auction on Saturday.

One side done and one to go, black Timascus and Zirc bolsters 👍

This is the first liner lock Hydra, I just finished setting the lock and detent and I'm very happy that everything went according to plan, if I manage to finish it this week then it would be auctioned Saturday through Sunday, have a good week everyone 🍻
