Something WICKED

Recommended Posts

This Way Comes....

Ohh K...wicked pretty much describes this  bugger...on several different levels.. The blade is a three core Twist/Counter twist  two (2) outer two cores  with a interrupted twist centre core.. All three cores  are welded  SS HT foil and 1045  (and this wasn't "welded in a can" either.).. It was just forge welded as "the usual"  around these here parts...   The edges are 1070 HC

Now getting the tip to "work" took some serious.. and I mean a good hour or so seriopus T&E but I finally got it to the right shape and curve. The curved fullers (one on each side) were a real PITA to do but,.... I managed to get it done by using a shorter fullering set in my fly press..(Had to make new fullers but  what the he......)  Recurved blades are a real challenge to get right  sometimes..especially when they  are as long as this one is   ..33" thereabouts and it is a MONSTER..

Some of my fossil Boz Taurus ivory with bronze studs and bolster/pommel plate complete this slayer....

I call this one a  Scimayagatana..a cross between a scimitar, yataghan and a katana... I dunno what I was doing... I just got another wild hare  involved and I  just went with it.. this is what came from that...  OK..my mind works in odd ways sometimes (especially when compared to "normal folks") ...

This little SOB of a blade wants to cut and the  follow through is smooth and very "powerful" due to the centre of gravity being so "forward" due to that recurved section..Man this is a WICKED Bugger!!

So here it is...in all its Wickedness... Now I got to figure out what to do for a sheath... and...the hits just keep on a comin'...

   Good lord Jim, that thing scares me looking at the pics on a monitor! Wicked is a good adjective but I'm not going to touch the Bugger nomen, I'd get in trouble. Most seriopus wild hare extractor ever seen outside Mordor. What does it weigh?
