I Forge Iron

Bowie knife

I made this one out of scrap I had in the shop. The blade is forged from a black diamond file, mild steel guard, brass spacer (salvage from a wear bar out of a fish plant I think) The handle wood is stabilized maple burl. I wish I could get some more of that handle wood.

Well I know you can get curly maple in many shapes and sizes from woodcraft but the whole stabilizing part is a little more difficult. I don't know much about the process but I know it's basically impregnating wood with epoxy resin or something like that but you might be able to make something like this to do it yourself. http://www.knifeart.com/thevbycurmwi.html and as for the stabilizing medium, woodcraft has many of them by the gallons. I hop this was in some way helpful 






good luck with any attempts at this. I might be trying soon.
