Forging a simple blacksmith knife

Recommended Posts

I made this for a buddy of mine and thought I'd share the build with you guys.  Material is a vehicle leaf spring, probably 5160.

Very nice! 

I saw this post last week and was thinking about it on the drive in this morning.  I really like the flowing likes of the knife.

I really like the way that handle is turned over into the blade - I haven't seen that before.  Very nice. 

​Same here, I like what you did there, looks like a modern version of the "blacksmiths blade".

Very, very nice job!!! btw, out of interest: did you do this in a coal forge or a gas forge?
