  1. This is my first knife that I made out of a farriers rasp with a black oak handle and used leather liner. I know that I messed up with the hand sanding but couldn't figure out how to sand out the pits of the the teeth on the rasp to take out the blackness so... any other critiques to fix? the handle isn't actually black like it is in the first picture PRITCHETTFORGE
  2. I have a couple of new, but worn out 14 inch Save Edge hoof rasps . Does anyone know the carbon and/or other content of these rasps? Thanks
  3. This was one of two I made. The other one turned out better but cracked when quenching. The handle looks like it has a crack but is just a cold shut from drawing it out with the teeth on the rasp. Next time I will defiantly grind out the teeth. looks pretty rough. Has anyone else made these and did you clean the rasp up more before forging?
  4. The local Farriers popped into my forge last week and dropped of some of their old rasps. So what do you do when the world gives you blunt rasps? You make upcycle knifes of course. Overall length is 400mm or 16" in old money. Decided to keep the up-cycling theme going for the handle and used some old marine ply I had lying under the bench. I have to say this was a fun distraction for my usual work.
  5. This is my first completed knife. I have made blanks but never made the handle until now. I used a broken Bellotta Farriers rasp, normalized 3 times, and drew down the existing tang. Then I forged the blade from 6" (original broken rasp portion) to 9" and worked on uniform thickness and a straight blade. I then split a piece of oak and burned in the tang on both scales. I drilled the tang and then hardened the blade to a straw/bronze over my stoves burner. I then made 2 pins out of brass brazing rod 1/2" x 1/8". I made the pins pointed on both sides, placed them in the holes in the tang and u
  6. So, I took a bit of a departure from forging and decided to make some knives for my engine company for Christmas. It took me a bit longer than expected, but here are the finished products. The video doesn't mention that I hardened and tempered, but I did. Please share your critique. I am always ready to learn. PS: They were intentionally worked only to 400 grit to preserve the nature of the rasps. I wanted them a bit "rough".
  7. 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.
  8. I got a bunch of rasps and decided to play with one and wanted to make a rugged all around knife. pics to prove it!
