I Forge Iron

A couple of new ones

I've been working hard, but not much seems be getting off the bench.  I did get a couple of little guys done, however.  First, a couple of kiridashi.  These are for an old friend (not that she's old, mind you, but I've known her for a long time).  She scratch builds set pieces for war gamers.  1084 and osage.




The second is a kiridashi hideout, purse knife, whatever.  Damascus and fossil bone.

In some sense that is an accident.  The pattern is a basket weave, and the original billet was really low layer, 7 IIRC.  It was part of a failed experiment.  When I made the piece I had to forge it down from a 1.5" x .250 slab, which distorted the pattern lengthwise and compressed it.  I have two more pieces in the works, a gents bowie and a full size bowie.  The patterns are very different one piece to the next.


But thanks in any case.
