I Forge Iron

first stock removal 1095 knife.


Recommended Posts

This is my knife in progress.  Just finished hardening.  I will temper tonight.  I'm planing of a wood handle but might use 550 cord.  Not sure yet.  Learning as I go.  I would be lost without this sight.  I know how everyone loves pictures, so I will post more when I finish.

Looks very good so far. Flat bevels? It looks quite thick (I believe 5 mm, from the pics), why didn't you grind full height with this thickness? I think it would be strong enough to handle the full flat grind which has much better cutting properties...


I am loving it so far!!! Beautifully strong shape!!

I left it thick for a couple reasons.  I wanted a EDC that could handle batoning.  I didn't want to get to carried away with the belt sander and grind it to high.  The third reason is the fear of the blade looking like a piece of bacon after harding.  I played it safe with this one.
