I Forge Iron

Woodsman's Dashi


Recommended Posts

I have no idea what this is, but I love it. It reminds me of a huge dashi with a bit of tanto and some chopper thrown in the mix. But, then the handle throws everything out of whack! So.... call it what you want, I'm going with "Woodsman's Dashi".

I shaped the walnut "slabs" so they get wider towards the butt. The tang is drilled and the forged copper liners are "skeletonized" to reduce weight.

Woodsman's Dashi
Blade: 4 7/8" of Aldo's 1084. Flat ground bevels with 2000 grit hand-rubbed finish, forge-finish flats.
Handle: 4 1/8" highly figured American Walnut w/ Tung oil and buffed Conservator's Wax finish and copper pins. The forged and skeletonized copper liners feature hammered bevels. The leather lanyard has a large faceted walnut bead and three hand-turned copper beads.
Sheath: in progress

Thanks for looking. Please share your comments.
Here's a few photos. I'll take some better shots when the sheath is done if a couple of days.
