  2. I never know what to do with small left over pieces of my Damascus. So I weld a tang on and turn them into small kitchen knives. These 3 have Iron wood handles, micarta spacers and stainless fittings with epoxy and pinned handles.

  4. This is a video completing about two years of work in creating a single-edged pattern-welded sword or seax that could plausibly have been created during Viking times. It shows alls steps from assembling pieces of steel, twisting and forging until the sword blade is complete and tested with a simple cutting test. It’s about 30 minutes long and shot on a Sony FS7. It’s 4K and color graded for high-dynamic range (HDR). If you like it, please reshare it!

With all the contact and the wedge, I imagine the handle won’t be going anywhere soon. Some saw cuts helped a lot with profiling with a hatchet. I also tool that time to thin out the handle with a hatchet. For now the handle is pretty much as thin as I want it. With no vice, I found a regular knife worked about as well as a draw knife. All that’s left now is to saw and shape the end, clean up the kno

  11. I wouldn't think you need to normalize any more. If anything, this clamping would be an extra good normalizing cycle.
