This is the first real knife i have made, it took a day to forge and a day at home to do the handle, Not perfect but i like it.
It is made from EN9 medium carbon steel here is the breakdown of elements C. 0.50% Si.0.25% Mn.0.70% S.0.05% P.0.05%..
All the forging was done at Hector Coles place at swindon, this man is awesome he specialises in medieval blades and arrowheads.

cheers guys, ive made some knives before but only out of mild steel just practising really, but i have now ordered some en9 and also found a supplier for antler in scotland at good prices. But thanks again for the comments and also any criticisms would be welcome, can only help me improve my work.
