Billy Salyers Posted June 14, 2018 Share Posted June 14, 2018 Long time reader, 1st time poster. I started smithing in August of 2017. Up to that point, I'd never done anything with fire of metal. I've learned a lot by reading the discussions here. I just finished this knife, about 10 months after starting. I like how it turned out, but more than anything, I know it represents how much I have to learn. Thanks for all the help you've given so far, even if you didn't know it. The knife is an 8 inch Kiritsuke. The Damascus I forged from bandsaw and strapping. The layer count is around 126 give or take a few layers of grinding. I was going for a little higher, but stopped here The handle is ebony and Cocobolo with a hidden tang, a copper spacer, and a single square brass pin.
