  1. I made 2 billets - 16 layers 15n20 and 1095 forged out octagonal. Twisted one clockwise and the other counterclockwise. Forge welded those two together after a bunch of grinding, and forged the blade from that. After final grinding, engraving, etc. The blade went back to the coal forge for normalizing and hardening, then onto the oven for tempering. More cleanup and etching then it was time to make up the steel guard, bolster, pommel, and the African blackwood handle. Hours and hours later the veg tanned sheath. Blade length is 8" and overall length 13".videoplayback-dagger.mp4

  4. thats very similar, almost identical in fact to my forge, although mine is steel framed with brick lining. the pic i have is before the updates and upgrades, where i went from concrete to brick, lost the concrete "lid", and a couple of other fine tuning changes. i have used purely charcoal in it before and have a couple of observations, 1, very very hot; 2, much cleaner burn, hardly any smoke; 3, it throws sparks like an unmanned flame thrower. i do use a small amount of charcoal to start the forge up every time, so i can try and get some pics of the sparks thrown from just that.

  5. I can see why it sold so fast. The faceted and fluted handle really made the knife stand out. Doug
