I Forge Iron

First Custom Knife I’ve Ever Sold (pic heavy)


Recommended Posts

Howdy folks!

Been a while since I’ve posted anything, but thought I’d share my most recent knife. I don’t really consider myself a knife-maker... I would need a lot more experience and equipment to crank them out and make money, but I met a new friend who was so sold on the idea of me making him a custom blade, I gave in. :) 

He came over to talk about what he wanted, and I sketched out a design that he liked. He chose a forged (1080) blade, ironwood (good choice!) for the handle, vine-like filework on the handle spine, and a leather cross-draw sheath (a first for me). I’m pleased with how everything came out and I hope is will be too.

Positive or negative input is always appreciated!

Looks like a very comfortable handle.

Yes, the palm swell makes for a very comfortable handle! I’m a little surprised I don’t see all that many knives being made with that general handle shape.
