I Forge Iron

W1 Integral


Recommended Posts

This knife and me went 'round and 'round the shop for two days, but I think I've almost won!
First, the Integral blade forged from W1 round stock and heat treated with Satanite backing.
I have a little difficulty with capturing the hamon photographically, but I think it's fairly evident.
The Stabilized Spalted Oak had me on the run as well! It was a little open grained, but rather than eliminate it all, I stopped short so as to leave a little grain that really gives it a nice rustic appearance.
The knife is assembled in a Take-down configuration with hot blued fittings.
Over-all length of 10 1/2", with a 6 inch blade, not including the bolster area.
Hope you enjoy !
