I Forge Iron

Damascus dagger


Recommended Posts

My first attempt at a dagger, for a cousin who requested a “showpiece fantasy blade”. The pattern was somewhat accidental. It consists of two twist bars, same direction, that were about 1/2” square x 7” long and forge welded together. Carefully forged the blade to shape, not wanting to open up the long seam, which after etching revealed a pretty neat pattern. I’ll try more blades like this.

By the way, I would like to put up better photos from my iPad but the 5.3mb or so pics wouldn’t upload and these ones unfortunately are much smaller files. Any suggestions?
