Knife # 5, bowie, pics, full tang

Recommended Posts

It has been awhile since I have finished a knife. This is # 5. Blade is 5160. Blade is forged and tang is stock removal. Scales are bloodwood. Blade is 6 1/2" and tang is 5 1/2". Spine has filework and ricasso has choil cutouts. Blade was triple quenched and tempered in oven. Spine and tang drawn back with torch. Also, my first use of my touchmark.

Really Nice work. It's a shame the public doesn't realize the amount of time involved in finishing.

Thanks guys, much too kind. Phil, the touchmark is a hardened steel stamp I had made. I stamp the steel when I am normalizing, before quenching. I was a bit angled on this one. Note that the letters are darker and deeper on one side. Hopefully my next one will be a bit better. I like it so far.
