Hammered out a knife the other day..

Recommended Posts

This is my second knife.. The firs one I made I didn't get to finish before the show I was going to started.. It was the first thing sold, which surprised me since it was just hammered into rough shape. Please give any and all advise on this one. It's almost done. Still need to polish it up and make a sheath for it. I've been away from my anvils for a few month and am just now getting back into it.

Looks like you have a nice clean hammered bevel going, from what I can  see in #4 (hand held) Would that be a Wilton vise its setting on in the last two? Great vises!

Thanks Dodge! Good eye.. That's a Wilton bullet. I was shaping the knife at work with a sander.. Yes.. I cheated.. The knife was on my vise at work. I did aquire my own Wilton tradesman yesterday with 8" jaws.. Building a stand as we speak!

Looks good! I've made a few rail road things myself, and they're a lot of fun to make and sell super easy. I like your bevels and twists!
