  1. Forged this knife for a retirement gift for a co worker. Forged it from 1095 steel. Full tang. Blade is 8 1/2" OAL. Full flat grind with a satin finish. Hand rubbed to 600 grit. Nice deep choil. Decorative filework on spine of the tang. Brick red liners. Handles sanded by hand to 3000 grit and buffed. Sculpted to fit in hand. Fitted with 1/8" bronze pins and a 1/4" brass lanyard tube. Sheath is 7 oz leather, hand sewn. Full welt. Line 24 brass snap. Antiqued finish and border tooling. I like the way it all came together.
  2. Forged this knife out of a farriers rasp a few weeks ago and got it finished up. Knife has a full flat grind, hand rubbed satin finish. I left a few of the file and rasp marks in the blade to add some character. Blade is 10" OAL. Fitted with stabilized Honduran Rosewood handle scales that have been scupted to fit your hand better. Handles sanded by hand to 800 grit. SS pins and an aluminum lanyard tube. Did some filework on the spine of the tang for a little class. Sheath is a pouch style made from 7 oz leather. Hand sewn with some border tooling. Dyed medium brown. Turned out nice.
  3. Looks great! I really like that size of knife. Anything larger than that is just for show. Good shape, size and finish!
  4. Looks great! I think the cold blue did a good job on the guard and sub hilt. Nice job on the blade and handle as well!
  5. I can relate. Once you get it, your done for. There ain't no turning back after it bites you. Costantly thinking about knives, new designs, new techniques and more power tools!
  6. Thank You! Yeah the forging marks left in it give it a more primitive look. That's what the customer wanted so that is what he got.
  7. Thanks. Everybody likes something a little different. I have done them flush with the guard before and I really don't like the look. I like it seperated myself.
  8. Thanks! Yeah this is more my style compared to the little slicer.
