I Forge Iron

First forged knife


Recommended Posts

Started blacksmithing about 5 years ago with the intent to become proficient at moving hot metal and then start bladesmithing. Got heavily into it and now have a 88 lbs power hammer and large screw press and a few anvils. So this is my first try at forging a knife. Old bandsaw blade and O1 with a hidden tang. I didn't have any brass or bronze so I melted down nickels into a slab and then plasma cut the shape and ground it down for the guard and pomel. Behind the guard is a piece of antler from a shed I found 20 years ago back in high school. Then a piece of Gaboon ebony and then some black walnut. Now I have a few more waiting to be finished; a 15n20-1095 and a 15n20-1095 40 layerson either side of a 52100.
