I Forge Iron

My first two attempts (Stock Removal)


Recommended Posts

Here are my first two knives. I haven't gotten good enough with the hammer to forge a knife yet so these were made by stock removal.

The first was ground out of a Camillus OVB blank. The blade is about 5 inches. The handle is Desert Ironwood Burl.

The second knife is a skinner out of 1095. The handle is Desert Ironwood.

I'm working to improve my forging skills. I hope to post a picture of a forged knife when I have learned enough to try.

wow i wish my first two knives had that level of detail, reminds me what patience can get, sweet knives, how were they heat treated/ tempered???

I sent these to a knifemaker in Texas for heat treating. I didn't have my forge built so I didn't have a good way to do it. I'm practicing heat treating now (making steel strikers etc.) so I can heat treat my own next time.

Thanks for the comments!
