W2 integral pig sticker with hamon, Impregg, and ebony

Recommended Posts

Just finished up this puppy. I had a lot of fun forging this blade; W2 high carbon steel blade with integral guard. Handle is my own cast Impregg handle material (sanitized crushed egg shell, mica powder, and G-Flex epoxy) and ebony. The Impregg material is translucent in the thinner areas around the guard. The hamon came out almost exactly as intended - a little closer to the edge in spots but still very serviceable.

I have to ask, if you are willing to share: did you already have the handle shaped via a mold, or did you shape it from a block? Just curious as it seems everyone has a different approach.
