I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

A small utility knife forged from OW1(1.2516, 120WV4) round bar, with Ibex(capricorn) horn slabs, copper pinned and an overall length of 185 mm.

This steel is about 100 years in use and it is such a great stuff to make excellent blades.Forges and welds very easy(actually a waste in a damascus billet)grinds and finishes also with very less effort....very good edge holding and easy to sharpen.....http://www.metalravne.com/steelselector/steels/OW1.html....simply a joy to work with.
