Yes, I had to spell it wrong to get it to rhyme, haha. Another century old file reforged into a knife; deer tibia from my uncle's hunt a year or two ago. When I first got the bone from him it was already in rough condition, to firstly I stabilized with crazy glue and vacuum chamber. I used to only do random hamons... not any more! I'm very happy with the pattern achieved. Comments and critique encouraged, Theo
Thought I would share a few pics of the latest blade I finished. It is hand forged 5160 steel. It is 11 1/2" total length. Blade is 6" long and 2" wide. About 5/32 thick. Handle is 5 1/2" long. Knife was done all by hand. Forged, draw filed, hand sanded up to 2500 grit. I left a few forging marks in the blade to give it a little character. It has a convex cutting edge that cuts really good. Handle is stabilized bone scales pinned with 3/32 304 SS pins. It has black vulcanized liners. Bone scales hand rubbed down to 1000 grit for a real smooth finish. Sheath is 6/7 oz leather. Pouch
