Yeah sizing without a doming block or reduction dies it's almost impossible :( When I didn't had one the smaller rings I made where size 6.5!
I live in Italy bro :) Thank you a lot, I'm glad you enjoyed :D

Making/Fixing Tool Grips With Plastic Bottle String
They are called just "liner" or "spacers" try to google them with "knife making".The pins I used are made of brass, just some 5mm diameter round stock :)As HauptmannP sad you can use other materials, but for liners make sure the material is tough enough otherwise it will scratch easily, I wouldn't reccommend any plastic :)
Yep only glue and friction! The fit is really tight :)
To make black epoxy I grind a little piece of charcoal into powder and I add it to the epoxy :) But here I didn't added any color to the epoxy, the black part in the handle are the liners! If you want to see the effect of charcoal epoxy watch my ring from nut video :) Thank you a lot!
Knife sharpener? :D I don't know if it has a specific name in english sorry :)
Thank you sir! Much appreciated :D
It's 1070, I somehow missed it! Thank you :)

You are clearly not italian mate, don't know why you say so :) This text has been translated to italian really poorly, there are tons for nonsense errors! That being said I really like your knife!

That's great! :) thank you! sorry i reply only now, I must have missed this comment. Have nice holidays :)
Thank you mate! :)
Oh nice :) Looks like you know what you are doing! You know it just came my mind that I saw in a mall some rectangular cake mold that look just like ingots but maybe they are on the big side :) Keep it up mate! See you
Thank you mate! Too kind ! :) Have nice holidays.
Thank you! :D I don't really know, here in Italy where I live it has almost the same price everywhere: around 10 euro. :)
Haha! Okay thank you mate :) be safe! :)
Thank you! :) The only two things That I have seen being recycled into "anvils" well are the common train rails or used from forklift fork! If You Already have a piece of rail I guess you can find a plate heat treated to weld on top of it somewhere :) Good luck mate and have good holidays!
I saw just now this comment mate sorry! :) Yeah you're probably right but you have to work with what you find right? :)
Hi mate! I would like to point out that molten aluminum and concrete are very dangerous together if there is any amount of moisture in the concrete! If it's the case the molten metal will literally EXPLODE. This happens because the water inside concrete become steam and expand. I really suggest you to use steel mold if you can't get casting sand :) Have a nice holiday :)
Haha! Thank you buddy :)
Thank you mate :) That's great! Have fun :)
Yeah, and It's also hard to weld with a stick welder like mine :)
Okay! :) Thank you for the suggestion
Oh... I see. Now I get it xD
The metal band saw is so useful ! It came handy many time since I bought it :) Maybe you can find a good deal on an used one like I did! Thanks for commenting
Thank you a lot :) I will try one for sure!
Thank you :)
Thank you sir! :) Happy Holidays to you too!
Thank you a lot mate :) Have fun!
Thanks mate, nice to hear that :) Have fun!

Thank you mate! :D
Haha! Thank you sir! :) I really appreciate your kind words! You are right, those who never saw any other aluminum casting and knifemaking video won't understand much from this article probably :( The main reason I didn't added many extra information is that I didn't wanted to overcomplicate this and also because I struggle a bit trying to explain myself well in written english :'D But I should definitely add a "more info" paragraph to every step! Thank you again for the suggestion, I will keep your point it mind to improve my articles :)
Thanks! You are right, this is called "lost foam" casting method, the molten aluminum replace foam. By doing stuff this way there are many things that can go wrong, when I cast with foam I have a success rate of 50% more or less :'D Making a proper 2 or more part mold gives much cleaner result but in some application it is not really easy. This project was perfect for foam because I was able do carve the handle really easily :)
Haha! Thank you mate :)
Thank you a lot! :)
Thank you! :)
Thanks! :D I always wanted to make instructables articles of my projects so I can explain a bit better what I do. Hopefully with time I'll have one for each :)
Thank you sir! :) I didn't polish all the knife because I was worried it was going to be too shiny, like if it would have looked like a one solid piece of shiny stuff. I know I'm not explaining myself well :'D Thank you again for the kind comment!
