    Large chopper with micarta

    Blade is san mai 80crv2 and mild steel - micarta handle with stainless corbybolts - sheath has stainless fittings too. Blade made in 2011 ....one of the first large ones I made. Did not want to finish it at first due to a few small welding flaws ...but decided to anyway.

    I actually use different sized ballbearing balls to flare the tube - they are smooth and do not scratch the tube

    San Mai WIP

    I have made several blades with stainless cladding over carbon steel. The different stainless steel types give different results. I have used 316L, 304, A-ebl, 12c27, 416 and 1.4034 ( a 420 series steel ) The 420, and all the other knifesteel types all show carbon migration while almost none is found when using 316 stainless. A few examples shown - only one with 316 stainless ....2 pictures of the knife. I do not polish my knifeblades to a mirror polish ....theese blades were all hand finished to 800 grit except the 316 which was finished with a 400 belt finish.

    Wrought iron, pure nickel and high carbon steel some stabilized ebony and stabilized pear wood. Forged the blade over a year ago and I’m glad I finally found time to finish it.

    Stainless San mai

    If you clean your steel and keep them flat almost any steel will forge weld in a canister or with a seem welded around the billet ( san mai ) I have used O1, 52100, OFS ( old file steel ) , O2, White paper and stainless 316, 304, Aebl, 420...... I heat the billet at forge welding temperature for 15 - 20 min before the first weld and also for at least 10 minutes when welded or between welds. Steels have to be the right thickness in san mai .....if not the core will be either to thick or too thin or there will be way too much grinding on the outer layers. I still get this wrong although I try to keep a record of my works. I have never used a tube - so looking forward to seeing the result

    Damascus kitchen knife

    Made this knife for my nephew Anders , who married his lovely Isabella last saturday. Twist damascus, G10 and stabilized elm. Matching leather sheath ....Did not really know if I could match the sheath with the wood ....but if I had failed I would have colored the sheath black to cover the failed attempt.
