I Forge Iron

Stag and Rados Damascus


Recommended Posts

Here's a Sambar Stag and Rados Damascus hunter destined for deer hunting in Texas!
I forged this from a chunk of Jerry Rados' Random Damascus of W2 and 203E variety.
I always get Jerry to make me pieces of his Random extra thick so I do a LOT of forging to get the blade to shape. This creates and unbelievable amount of 3-D Voodoo in the blade after hot-bluing.
The Take-down fittings were made from mild steel stock, mirror polished and then hot-blued to "Black Glass"!
Handle is a Premium Sambar taper. "Ivory" portions of the Stag brought to 1500 grit and then polished.
Overall length is 10 1/4" with a 5 3/4" blade.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it.
