I Forge Iron

First Attempt at a Feather Pattern


Recommended Posts

I've always been intimidated by feather patterns, but decided to give it a try.  I love how it came it, and will absolutely be trying some other variations in the coming months.

Blade Length: 6"

Handle: 4.5"

1080 and 15n20, bone bolsters, walnut scales, black leather spacers

This took me about 2 and a half weeks from start to finish, which is the most time I've spent on a single knife in quite a while... I wish I had made the handle just a bit bigger... my wife says it fits her hand perfectly, so I guess that's not terrible, but even for a kitchen knife, I'd like it to be just a bit bigger for my hand.  The bone also came out looking kind of gray and dirty.  Other bone I've used has come out white and clean looking, but I guess I got a bad cow or something with this batch.
