I Forge Iron

hunting knife in the works


Recommended Posts

This is a practice piece. Again, working on the hammering technique, this one completely formed with the hammer including the bevel. (except where I cut off the rod I had welded on for a handle) It is made from an old nicholson file. I've already finished it up with my new grinder. I'll get more pics up tomorrow.

Thanks for the comments guys, i've attached the scales to the blade and done a little sanding. Should have it finished up this weekend and another picture. This will officially be the first knife i've finished with a handle on it. ;-) That W1 leaf knife i made was actually my first "finished" knife, only cuz it didn't need a handle. I've got a few others that are still in need of some work and handles. Handles being a part which I've barely put any time into practicing making yet.

Thanks again everyone. And thanks for the compliment Steve. I really appreciate your comments. I still think i've got to figure out a few more things before I would even try selling a blade. I've only finished a few knives and yet to do any kind of an edge holding test on any of them. Once I get a few more out I'll try to do something like the abs bladesmith test against them because that seems pretty standard.

However I don't know that I'd ever get into selling them. Right now this is a hobby for me, i don't know how much i would ask for a blade or whatever i would ask would it be fair and worth the time in put into them... i dont know...
