I Forge Iron

Rookie bowie knife


Recommended Posts

I have been at this only a few months, surprised I lasted this long before trying a bowie. Since i started with a bar the blade was as much stock removal as forging. i was pleased how close my forging was to the pattern I did not try to forge the bevel on this as I am having a hard time keeping the bevel straight. It's easier to grind to a scribed center line.

Finished it with some denser than water reddish wood I took off a pallet. This is a wall hanger so I tried to patina the blade with hot vinegar. The cross piece I need to figure out how to blacken where I ground it. Maybe cold blue
