    So anyone have any history on Instanter? I never saw one before!
    Thanks!! I would also love to hear about history on Instanter. There are a couple threads with a few different ones pictured but I've not found specific info about the maker yet.

    People wonder where the time goes, I wonder where it comes from.

    Superb work Tuz, never found anything about Instanter other then its a common word mostly in England meaning at once, immediately, and a town in Pennsylvania.

    Thanks! Yeah there's not much info but the way "instanter" was used like an adverb like "immediately" is interesting. For example from the London and Paris Observer 1833, "The person who kills a hog, is entitled to cut off, instanter, and carry away the head; but half an hour is allowed for the owner to claim the body..."

    And the town of Instanter in Pennsylvania is interesting as well. It seems Instanter was a logging community on the Clarion River, lost under water in 1950 when the east branch of the river was dammed up. But, in drought conditions or when draining the dam for repairs the community is revealed and former residents would gather for reunions there.

    That is simply beautiful. I love the satin finish faces in contrast to the mirror spine/tang. What did you use to finish the blade faces?

    Thank you, much appreciated! I did the work by hand and once I got the blade was cleaned up to a near mirror I went and did the finish on the faces with different grits sandpaper dry and then oiled carefully going spine to edge in straight lines.
