Big knife, from a big truck spring

Recommended Posts

Hello! I made this knife from a truck spring, about 1 cm thick! Sharp razor! Homemade micarta handle, screws adapted to make it removable, colored blade with gunkote! Leather sheath!

Hope you like it!

Welcome to IFI, nice looking knife. It looks stout. Did you make it with mainly stock removal or forge work? What was the heat treatment? Are you interested mainly in knifemaking or other forms of blacksmithing?  BTW I like your avatar. Give her a pet for me.

dear pnut, thanks!

it was mainly a work of removal, the only part that required forging was to straighten the bar! I quenc it in heated oil, using the gas forge I built and then tempering it in the home oven. No particular sophisticated treatment. I am mainly interested in knives and cutting tools for woodworking, but I would also like to try some other work with iron. I build some machinery like my belt sander, but I don't think it can be valued as a blacksmith job! I will surely cuddle my cat for you! He calls himself Yume and he is a funny guy! Greetings from Italy!
