I Forge Iron

Bandsaw Blade


Recommended Posts

About five years ago, one of my good high school friends gave me some bandsaw blade to make knives with. After sitting on the shelf for half a decade, I picked it back up today and made this. No hot forging, all stock removal.

Overall length: 10.5 inches
Blade length: 5.5 inches
Handle 5.0 inches
Cherry slabs pinned with 3/16" copper rod. Patina-ed with Ferric Chloride.

Blade etched with Ferric Chloride, with white-out used for the cross.

I like it. It inspires me to make some. I have a friend that has a portable lumber mill and he gave me 8 used blades. Maybe in a half of a half of a decade I will start one. Wouldn't want to push it :P .
Same friend also gave me 4 ea large 4ft diameter wagon cart wheels that were laying around his old farm house. All are wrought iron. :D :D
I am blessed by having good friends. Even if they don't give me free stuff.
