I Forge Iron

Commissioned Utility knife


Recommended Posts


This is my first commissioned piece, I was requested to “make something awesome” as long as it was a utility knife, and here is the result. This is only really my third blade, but I’m very pleased with it!

The blade was etched in ferric chloride, which gave it that strange mottled pattern you can see – not sure how that happened?! Any ideas to the reason?

This was also my second attempt at any realy leather work. I left it undyed as it think it goes nicly with the oak handle.
