I Forge Iron

First Hamon, and I didnt even try

Recommended Posts

There I was sanding a knife ready to go out to a customer, when I notice this strange shadow along the blade.  It doesnt sand out, and I am not sure it's even really there.  After a day of polishing and soaking in acid turns out it was a hamon, and I wasnt even trying for it.  Really excited about this, my crappy camera doesnt do it justice.  This was with 1095 too, which I thought I understood was harder to get these kinds of results with.  Anyway I am super happy and had to share this with ya'll.
