  1. So 8 years ago i started this dagger and i never finished it all that was left was to put the handle on and polish it up. Finally got around to it this weekend. the blade is hand forged L-6, 1018 cross guard and kingswood handle with a copper pommel. The edges are cannel ground and sharp enough to slice paper with effort. Good and durable for a stabbing implement.
  2. *I realize I accidently posted in the blacksmithing forum instead of the bladesmithing forum...however I am finding it difficult to put this in the appropriate area, my apologies!* So I'm working on my second knife project (posted my first one earlier), and I had some questions with regards to the heat treat (which I am planning to do tomorrow). The piece itself is a dagger I am working on out of 1095 steel. I have the profile and grinding done for it, and am getting ready to heat treat, but a bit nervous about the quench. I am planning on using clay along on the spine of the
  3. Well, it's been a...journey, but I finished the second blade I mentioned I was working on (knife number 2 done!). This blade caused me a lot of trouble, and I learned a lot as I went, but as always, suggestions/critiques always help! Story time first! I am still working on edge geometry and the bevel...trying to figure out how to improve upon those two with my hammer for the initial shaping, and then my angle grinder (really hoping for a belt sander for Christmas...think that might help just a tad). So, shaping this blade went well in my opinion, I got close to the shape I wante
  4. I've been meaning to post this for two months now. I always seem to have time to read 4 to 10 posts made by other people everyday, but can't find the time to make one of my own. The blade is 5160 and is 10 1/2" long with a distal taper. I made this one for a friend and it's the longest blade I've finished. I poured my own brass for the guard.

    Crusades Dagger

    9 7/8", 5160 blade. 15 1/4" O.A.L. Crusades Dagger. This is elegance at its finest !
  6. I'm looking at making a quillon dagger to the specifications of the ABS Master Smith certification (which brings up a whole can of worms that I don't want to get into on this post). I was looking at pictures of WIP online and noticed that a few of them had a step down kind of thing going on with the tang. Is there a reason for this? I've been making knives for years and haven't seen this technique used. Maybe I'm just living under a rock!
  7. A customer had seen a larger dirk that I had done recently and requested something a bit smaller...more in the 10 inch range. He was kind enough to give me full artistic license and I came up with this smaller dirk. The overall length is 10 inches so just in between a sgian dubh and a dirk. The guard is nickel silver, the blade is forged 1084, and the wood for the sheath and handle are curly maple. I wasn't able to photo graph it quite right and it kept coming up more reddish. Another thing is that I was in such a rush to snap the photos before I ran home that I forgot to slide the knife all t
