AkFilm Posted August 26, 2016 Share Posted August 26, 2016 I'm still really shy about my work, so not posting on the main forums pages, but you're fellow Alaskans...I feel safer from the sharks, and I know it's important to share work now and again. Here are some of my recent projects I'm working on, or finished with. Single hand Italian arming sword circa 1490. Based off a museum piece. Blade is 5160, guard and pommel are mild steel chemically blued. The guard is S shaped with flaring ends. Pommel was a pain to hand sand to shape, but it's there now and happy with it. Grip is maplewood covered in dyed leather with risers. Next is a knife, made from an 80 year old file, seemed liked 1095 so treated it as such. File worked spine, handle is stabilized cottonwood burl that is crosscut with brass pins. Some work in progress: A Swiss Degen circa late 1400's. Blade is 5160, grip is zebrawood, guard and pommel are etched wrought iron. I have no good photos yet of the small utility knife I'm making for my wife. It's a small feather damascus blade, with float copper bolsters and the handle is made up of stabilized 4,000 year old redwood from the permafrost in Alaska.
