Two of my LE friends apparently have actual skill.  Both recently decided to start doing metal work at home.  Like making knives and stuff.  

One made me this really cool belt knife that is the sharpest knife I've ever owned. He had one if his friends put an EGA and my last name on it (so when I'm old, I can pass it to my son). He told me how he made it, what steel he used, and it came with a kydex sheath he made. I didn't understand most of what he said.  He said he had about 16 hours in the knife and sheath.  

The utensils were just an evening project from another guy.  He made them from 1/2" rebar and a farriers hasp.  He had made me a Viking helmet for the range, and I had said I needed Viking utensils for a grill I plan on putting out there.  I think they're perfect.  

Guess what I'm using to carry all day and for dinner at home the next few nights?

Both of these guys are full-time cops, and this is just a hobby for them.  I just thought I'd share because I think they're awesome.

I drive through Detroit on the regular. It should be real easy to find one there. It might need some patch work and there's a good chance you'll have to lower your standards on the whole disease thing. 

Your buddies rock! I'd buy a set of utensils from them if they started selling them...just sayin.

I need to learn how to do that 

The heck with that, I need new friends.

That is great stuff.  

That guy understands knives.  Terrific all around blade shape  and handle design.

A drinking horn might be easier to find...at least for most of us.

Your right. I need friends who can teach me how to do it. 

As for skulls; No.

A bison I hunted? I know. A mug fashioned from a brass arty shell. I don't even know what they use. I saw a shot glass made from a 20mm or 25mm once.

Some time ago someone here was talking about turning 84mm fired cases into mugs...suitably cleaned, cerakoted & glass bottomed.

Cool- beats silver cups extorted out of departing members.

Were they chromed or coated in any way?
