Very nice looking. How did you achieve the patina if you don't mind my asking?


I used birchwood casy's plumb brown. It's used for browning muzzle loader barrels. Easy to use

The handle is burned with a torch and then I use toung oil.

great work and the detail is fantastic how on earth did you do the cross in the end so neatly its finished so well thank you for the pictures very cool mate :)

The cross in the blade was done by drilling 5 holes one on each end and one in the middle. I then took an old chisle and ground it flat and sized it to go between the hole on the cross end to the center. Then got the head hot and used the chisle to punch the cross out. I finished it with a small file.
