Introduction for Tranquilpen

Hi, I have been spending my time as a writer, posting articles on my many blogsites. I have chosen to write on various subjects with an aim of serving a broader readership. My main interests are focused on human endeavor, science, and alternative healing. When I am not writing, I make hunting knives. My favorite metal is called D2 knife steel which is soft to work over, with a quality Nicholson, medium grit hand-file.

I am often curious, just how many file strokes it takes to turn out one of my branded [Fish Eagle Hunters] from the first stroke to the "dressing" or final embellishment of the cutting edge, stroke, never counted, before initial polishing and tempering it to 61 degrees Rockwell, the ideal degree of hardening needed for a knife to stay sharp for longer.

Incidentally, I call any and all of my knives, [Fish Eagle Hunters], from the folding lock-blades to the solid one piece, Bowie types. Another "stock in trade" is that every piece one of my entire 112 [Fish Eagle Hunter] creations, for the past 15 years, is unique, in that every template containing the knife's unique features is destroyed after completion, I believe it enhances the value of a product, when the owner realizes that there is literally, no other knife like it in the world. Note: Dressing, is the final touch-up with a file, on the cutting edge.

Hello,welcome to you. Hope you enjoy here. I admire your skill but I hope the knives never fall into careless hands.

I knew another fellow who made knives. He since moved further south, has grown old, and passed. But it was his passion.
