I Forge Iron

My 1st Knife


Recommended Posts

That's pretty cool, what's it made out of?

Thanks Shawn. We used a 1080 steel blank (1/8 X 1 1/4 X 8 I believe). Took us hours to complete, but the instructor hammered one out in 5 minutes. We all felt pretty small lol.

Nice Job for a first Knife! Can't wait to see more! Welcome to IFI. This is an awesome site! Plenty of resources available!Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Loneforge for the compliment and the welcome. Glad I found it. So far good people and info.

I would rather see a blade like yours that took many hours, than some of the 15 minute rush jobs I see a lot of, you took your time to get what you were taught and you did well. and while many of us can do a good blade in a few minutes hammering, you will also in a few years. do not feel bad that someone is better or faster today, its all from practice.
