I Forge Iron

Damascus neck knife.


Recommended Posts

Damascus neck knife with spalted ash handle scales.

The Damascus was given to me by my Father and I had the blade hardened, cryogenically by a local company.

This is the 6th knife that I've finished mainly by stock removal, although I'm moving into forging also.

It took me a while to finish the knife, now I need to work on a buffalo leather sheath.

Nice. The pattern is very interesting, but those scales! Wow! I'm a fan. Did you do the initial heat treatment on it before having it cryogenically treated?

Thanks. All the heat treatment was done by a small UK company called shingcrafts. Usually do my own heat treatment but stainless Damascus/cryogenics is a bit (very far) out of my league.

I could be wrong, but looks like a single bevel Scandi grind in the pics, which by their very nature are going to be shorter than a standard bevel that has a secondary cutting edge at a steeper angle. Scandi grinds are pretty handy on little neck knives because to field sharpen on a stone you can just lay the bevel on the stone and voila your sharpening angle is set. I like 'em on neck knives and "bushcraft" knives.

Purdy knife by the way.
