This started out as a half round file... I don't know if it was hard to get it into shape because it started out as a semicircular shaped object, or if it is simply that small, thin knives are more challenging than the big choppers I've been making... But this thing's size is no tell of how hard of a time it gave me, nor the sense of accomplishment it gives me as a baby knife maker to be able to say that I hand forged my latest edc knife (which fits better in pocket than a thick bodied pen). And look at the snakeskin pattern the half round file gave it! I figured it would be an uggo when I first started hammering it into a square rod... but it ain't bad compared to some of my others.
Evening gents, Tonight I bring you another wharncliffe in W2. Differentially hardened with APG-36 and Parks 50, you can sorta make out the hamon in the first picture. Black G10 and cocobolo where each layer is the same thickness for a more dynamic reveal. Copper pins... I should have done copper liners too...right? Lemme know what you think
Hi everyone, So here is my prototype of a "production" run I've been mulling over. Several months ago I began working at a lasercutting shop in Manhattan, and have been going crazy designing furniture, displays, and knives in my own time. This is the result of attempting to figure out the ideal materials and methods. My first attempts were lasercut G10, but I was finding the material incredibly difficult to cut without charring or burning. Ultimately I swapped out for 1/16" walnut and mahogany we have around the office - I was thinking future customers would get to choose two hardwoods that I could laminate like I did these. For the first series I would purchase 4 varieties of hardwood and mix n match (only what combines well, of course). Now the area I am struggling in; pricing.... I was thinking $350. Due to the limited forging involved, and the swiftness that the machine can cut the handle and saya components for me, I felt doing a run of 10 would put me in a good place. Please be honest and brutal, Theo
