I Forge Iron

First blade for a year!


Recommended Posts

Ive had a year off making blades as I have had many other projects on the go. I forged this one up a couple of weeks ago, and put the heat treat and grind on it this week.

It is a colaboration knife that is going to another maker for handle and guard. It will be sold and the proceeds to the 'Royal British Legion' (helping vets etc)

Tried to keep it 'tight and right' - its hand sanded to 120 g at the moment. I used a dead flat carbide block as the backing for the abrasive, makes it a lot more work but hopefully the effort shows. Its the cleanest blade Ive ground so far

Blade around 5"- 6" long, hopefully it will end up a little 'hunting' type knife but its out of my hands now!

Sorry for the poor pics, they are off my phone and the light is bad. I will update the thread when its etched, handled and clothed!
