The darkest blade I've ever made, death in the night. Forged 80CrV2 finished in Dura-Bake enamel, black G10 scales with mosaic and copper pins. "Mango knife" This customer had a favorite knife with a very specific shape that he used to prepare fruit, I replicated the blade with superior steel and updated handle shape. 15N20 blade with copper, buffalo horn, and Brazillian bloodwood.

Since I've recently relocated my forge and anvil to the little cobon behind our garage, my shop is now sheltered from the elements as well as being well lit enough for me to work at whatever time of day or night, i've been getting back in the swing of smithing (hadn't hit hot steel nigh on a year now). I figured I'd post some of my pieces and pictures from the Facebook page I created for my shop. So, enjoy (or not, that's your own opinion; I'm rather biased towards my own work). The first thing i ever made with a forge, hammer, and anvil a few years ago, and below it the knife i made tonight. RR Spike Fighter pre grind. Out of every blade I've ever made, this one is the most gracefully shaped. My buddy Wesley came by to chill a while in the shop and snapped a picture of me for my girlfriend. Final product of the RRS Fighter, decided to gift it as a display piece, sans heat treat other than water hardening. There is a weak spot at the transition from blade to handle, I twisted just a little too much, having never even held a rr spike before, much less worked with them. The finish is just what i whipped out with an 8" bench grinder with a wire wheel on one side and a grindstone on the other.
