I Forge Iron

first with O1 tool steel

scruffy forge

Recommended Posts

I was gifted a piece of O1 tool steel and figured I would make a knife out of it. I have made plenty out of old files and railroad spikes, but this is the first I have ever gotten to play with O1. This is what I came up with post-41676-0-17408800-1396044104_thumb.j post-41676-0-54453900-1396044115_thumb.j post-41676-0-04948000-1396044094_thumb.j It's 1/4" thick with a 4 1/4" blade and a 3 1/2" handle made out of flame maple and a kydex sheath. This is also the first time I have tried to do file work on a knife. Any feedback would be appreciated.
