I Forge Iron

Just completed my first knife!


Recommended Posts


80CRV2, stock removal.
58 HRC.  
.130" thick.  
Overall length: 13.8125"  
 Blade length: 8"  
 fordite handle  


This build has been a month long and 50 hours of work in the making. When I first started I had no idea if I would enjoy it, or if I would even be able to make a useable knife. Now that it's done I'm struggling to describe the joy and satisfaction that I felt holding the finished product and knowing that it had been made by my own two hands. I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone on this forum. I havent posted very much, but I have been reading for months and I wouldnt have been able to do this without your insight and knowledge.

Nice work. There is something special about having something that did not exist before you set your hand and mind to create it.  Also, it is a minor form of immortality.  Many of the things we create will be around long after we are gone.
