I Forge Iron

2nd forged knife after long break from the anvil


Recommended Posts

 some Work in progress but I made this out of an old coil spring. Just a practice knife to learn. I had alot of fun. The pins in the handle are actually just a couple old bolts I cut down to size. Wood is padauk with a light coating of linseed oil. Sanded down to 320 grit on the blade. I originally was going to build it out of an old skf bearing race but when I quenched it, the blade got a warp I wasn't happy about so I quenched a 2nd time and got micro cracks along the spine of the knife going down about an inch. So I just started over and this is my result.
