  1. Here is a kitchen knife I just finished. The blade is c1060 quenched in brine and is 10 inches long. The handle is purple heart with bloodwood laminated between. The customer had the wood laminated already.The handle is around 5.5 inches long with brass fittings. The display box is not finished yet. There is a deep hammer mark on spine from when i forged the blade, I thought it would come out in the polish,but it was to deep and the blade would be to thin. I offered to make another blade but the customer did not mind. He got a discount, hope you like..

  3. here is the first blade of four Iám working on. They are made from W2 and 1095 that i stacked in billets forge welded and folded. They are made from scraps I had around the shop. I can't remember how many times i folded them though. Overall length of the knife is 17 inches with the blade around 12 inches. The handle is made from black micarta with brass decorative menuki. The sheath is made from kydex, and designed to be worn on small of the back or on left side. The rest of the knives are basically the same with each hamon a little different. I will post pics of other knives as i get them done. hope you like.
