I Forge Iron

Kitchen knives - Wedding presents.

Recommended Posts

This week I'll be attending two weddings and the brides at both have always been supportive and encouraging of my bladesmithing, one of them having commissioned a pair of damascus kitchen knives as a gift to her son so I figured I'd forge them a knife each as wedding presents.

The blades are 240 layers 15n20 and Uddeholme 20C, the handles are bog oak and (I think) Afzelia, though I'm not 100% sure as this timber has been laying around for at least 75 years and was marked as Azelia which as far as I'm aware is a bush and not a tree. Whatever the timber is, it's incredibly hard and dense with a beautiful iridescence to the grain that I think compliments the patterns in the blades.
