as long as you take the seeds out, and use it in a reasonable volume of food, it isn't too spicy, and actually has flavour itself.
I usually use a tin of peeled whole tomatoes and a bottle of puree, but this is pretty much how I make mine. If you double the mixture, try adding a single, chopped and seeded, Carolina Reaper chiili for a good heat that doesn't linger to long.

Making a Mini Knife
This one is made from 2-3mm nubuck leather in chocolate colour. Veg tan reinforcements. 25mm (1") straps.
Love it! This is one of the things I make for the knifemaking/blacksmithing community here in Australia. The thing that always annoyed me in my original designs were the strap ends, and attachments. I now use a thin strip across the top part as a doubler, that is punched to fit the strap through, which is then riveted to itself. The lower straps are looped through shield shaped reinforcements sewn in. I found a good tutorial on making English point strap ends that doesn't require a different punch for each belt width on the Gold Bark Leather page.

Nice work indeed. I've had a grind of some Ti pieces, but not actually made anything. You can also use voltage to anodise Ti, almost like a paint brush of colour. Dana.engraving on instagram has some good examples of electrical anodsing of Ti
Knife Making 101 (reductive Process)
This assumes that your quench medium is exactly the same temperature all the way through, if you swished to a 'cold spot' the blade is likely to warp.
Please, use vegetable oil instead of motor oil, works exactly the same, but with less toxicity being emitted. Apart from that, a great instructable with good attention to detail.
Carving a Giant Utility Knife (entirely Out of Wood)
The tracking always requires adjustment. Between different brands of belt, age, they tend to stretch in different ways.
Very nicely constructed. I've seen a few done like this one. I have the steel to make one, but in a welded version for simplicity, just because I have access to one.
Very nicely constructed and photographed Instructable. This sheath shape is indeed the most simple and works with almost all straight spined knives. Some of the more curvy ones need more of a 2 piece sheath, but if you can master the 1 piece, a 2 piece is no problem. The only thing I would mention is left and right hand versions being marked on opposite sides of the leather.

It's fine to use to clean your bike chain of dirt and old lubricants. Let dry and use preferred lubricant to re-lubricate the chain.
What a great and simple solution to one of the biggest problems for anyone doing product photography or video at home.

Really like the description of your forging process and the basic techniques you have documented here can apply to any knife shape. Here's one in progress from a scrap of damascus I was playing with the other day.
It took me a little while, as I do a lot more stock removal than forging, but I needed the practice. This particular piece I didn't, but I have done previously. This piece is 1084 and 15n20. I did about 80% of what you see here with the hammer, and the rest tidied up on the grinder.
Thank you for your kind words.
Ask away.. That handle was sanded to 3000grit, and then carefully buffed (with a bench grinder mounted buffing wheel) with a little buffing compound. No oil or anything. If you look up Koa wood, it's in the same family as this one and should be easy to find.
If you really want to get crazy, you can go up to 2500 or 3000 grit before applying your oil, you'll get a superfine finish, almost a polish. Like the ringed Gidgee handle in this one I finished.
