Bit of a change from hawks , started out trying this with no power exept  for the coke blower.

Once forged i used a scraper and files , 1075 hardened in oil brought back  to spring .blade is just over 19 inch handle around 6 inch.

soon found i had to use a pedestal for handle and pomel .

hope you like .

That is a great piece!   One of the most fascinating things about it is you can not really judge the size just looking at it. its proportions could be letter opener size or two handed.

Hi  Charlotte yes unless you have somthing you know size of next to it

like the anvil in one of the pix thank you

Balance depends on mode of use: some are balanced correctly forward and some are balanced correctly at the guard, etc.  Pointwork vs edge plays a part.

Exactley what you said Thomas 


beautiful job,scrapping is almost a lost craft.

Gday Stan thanks for the complements mate .
