Just finished a couple

I have'nt posted in a long while, so here are the last two I finished. Both are made from my steel consisting of 1095, saw blades, and banding. The smaller is 63 layer random with a 3" blade and 6 1/4" overall. The slabs are ram horn and brass pins.

The larger knife is 99 layer with a pattern that resembles cut ladder, I get this from crimping the billet on the flat dies on my power hammer. It has a 4" blade and is 8 5/8" overall with birdseye maple slab and brass pins.

Both are hallow ground and 1/8" thick at the choil.

Thanks for looking,

Bruce, the top die is shimed to where the back part of the die hits first or is lower than the front so it makes crimp marks when the billet is at a higher heat. I just work the billet across in icrements(1/4" - 3/8") and then flatten out with flatter or as the billet cools a little.

Thanks for the kind words,
