  1. This bar was prelaminated when I got it. -Jeff Fogleboch
  2. SOLD Thanks A lot guys! -Jeff Fogleboch
  3. Mild steel won't spark it needs to be hardened high carbon steel. I'll post a tutorial in the near future guys! -Jeff Fogleboch
  4. I'd also like to add that I am willing to take orders for this if you guys are interested. They will be $25 shipped in the USA. If you guys want I can also post a tutorial on how I make these next time I go out and forge some. I choose to temper mine because as quenched steel is just too brittle. There is a good chance it will break if you drop it on the ground. I only temper at a really low temperature and it still throws wonderful sparks but has a lot more toughness in case you drop it. -Jeff Fogleboch
  5. Thanks a lot guys! Is the titanium harder to get a spark from? And I'm not sure. I don't think it matters too much about The angle but this happens to be square. Just make sure it is hardened and I temper mine to about the hardness of a file. Also make sure the striking surface is ground clean! Scale won't spark. -Jeff Fogleboch
  6. hey guys this isn't a blade but I thought I might share some of these forged steel strikers I've made. I got an order for some a few days ago and I really enjoyed making them. I made the smaller one for myself and the larger one was part of an order. Tell me what you guys think! -Jeff Fogleboch
  7. SOLD SPF
  8. Thanks a lot guys!
  9. Hi Kevin, think of the blade like a 5 layer sandwich stainless/nickel/core steel/nickel/stainless the stainless is very corrosion resistant and the nickel doesn't rust because it is pure nickel. The core steel is carbon steel and therefore susceptible to rust. Thanks for checking it out! -Jeff Fogleboch
  10. Hi guys I have just finished this one up. Its a japanese inspired petty knife hand forged by me.Steel:Hitachi Shirogami (white steel) number 1 laminated with SUS 410 stainless with pure nickel in between them.Blade:~4.375" long featuring a full distal taperHandle:~4.25" Wa handle featuring old growth mahogany bolster paired with beautiful light colored ringed gidgee This blade is wicked sharp and has a rounded choil and spine. I also took time to chamfer the sharp edges on the front of the handle and round the back of the handle. The blade was hand finished to 800 grit and etched to show the frosty mountain-like scenery in the blade caused by the carbon diffusion between the stainless jacket and high carbon core steel. The handle was finished to 2500 grit, buffed, rubbed with teak oil, and finally finished with paste wax.ASKING $300 Thanks for checking this out guys. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Now for some pictures.

Handle: Wa style featuring black g10, copper and old growth cocobolo PRICE: $450 If you have any questions feel free to comment/inbox me. Thanks for checking it out!
  13. Hey guys I finished this one up about a month ago and thought I would share it with you. The blade is made out of .100' thick CPM154 stainless and is 8" long. Handle is g10 with brass pins. The grind is slightly convex and was taken to .005" before sharpening. The spine and chill were crowned for maximum comfort. Now for the pics... Thanks for checking it out.
