Maple Fighter


Recommended Posts

This was a knife I wasn't planning on making originally, but when I saw Aldo's hamon contest on Facebook I figured I'd give it a shot. I've only recently started playing with hamons and I only know enough now to know how much I still need to learn :D If my mind serves correctly this is (I believe) my fifth knife with an attempted hamon.  This one if made from 1095 and was also a continued experiment in my interest in laminate handles. This one is a mix between curly maple, walnut, and leather; I also decided to do my take on a clam shell guard from antiqued copper. Tomorrow or later today I' start working on the sheath and I think it will incorporate some fold form copper. What do you think?




Blade length: 9 1/2 inches

Blade width: 1 3/4 inches

Handle length: 6 inches

OAL: 15 1/2 inches 

Steel: 1095


Thanks for looking.
