I Forge Iron

Hunter knife build

Relatively recently I had forged out this blade with an O1 steel core, nickel and wrought iron. Originally it was actually just a test piece in terms of forging as I was testing the taco method with the nickel sheet. 

The forging turned out to be very successful so I decided to try and complete the build to be as high end as my current skills allowed. 

I cast a bronze guard, and fit an Ebony spacer. The handle is spalted curly maple.

The edges of the joints in the handle are rounded in case of expansion or contraction of the wood (I’ve heard it called museum fit).

The only thing I’m not perfectly pleased about was that the blade geometry was a bit thicker near the edge than I would like.

let me know what you think!
