Howdy guys, Today I have two new blades for your consideration. First is a file given to me by Owen Bush when my class with him ended, reforged into a fighter similar to his own seax style with a twist. Blade was normalized, forged, annealed & drilled, normalized, differentially hardened, then double tempered to a delicious gold color at 395F/202C. The fittings are low layer damascus that's been etched then lightly repolished so only the topography shows, with steel pins, brass spacers, ebony and mosaic pin. I live in NYC, so when the blade was finished I just ran it over to Bill at MastersmithS, where it was added to his collection and soon to be on his website - only my second accepted knife! Here's Bill with it: The second is a damascus utility knife of old jackhammer bit steel (S-5?) and mild steel that I had forged a while ago in London (at Shelley Thomas' forge), but never handled until back in the States; handle is bamboo with mosaic and brass pins. The blade is differentially hardened tempered the same as the first; but has a small cold shut that I am not thrilled with, yet doesn't effect its cutting ability. I'd love to hear what you guys think, Theo
