    Tribute to Farriers...A knife for them..

    I think this is awesome! Absolutely stunning! Showed it to my dad, who is a retired journeyman farrier, and he thought it was epic too, especially that flawless finish on the brass!

    How thin is to thin?

    The edge is already thin enough to cut. Thank you all for the input. Doug I think that's exactly what this is going to become, a kitchen slicer, after a good reprofiling on the grinder.
  3. So I'm working on a tantoish style blade for a customer who wants it for an all around outside using knife, cutting hay strings, whittling, and self defense. The blade is ready for heat treating, the steel is leaf spring, and it's about 12" long. My concern is that it's only 2 mm at the widest part of the spine, so it's pretty flexible. Is that too thin to be functional? Should I scrap it and start over? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Makers marks

    I designed myself a makers mark a while ago, but only recently used it on a blade. I'm going to see if I can get it in a stamp, this one was engraved on the blade, so it's not exact.

    A Stabby Damascus Blade

    For the last four days I've been working in the Draper's shop in one of their knife making classes, learning the tricks of the trade, and in that time this is the blade I made under their supervision. It is 124 layers in a random pattern with a brass guard and kings wood for the handle. It measures 4 and a 1/4'' on the blade and 8 and a 1/2'' overall. It is my own design, inspired by the Scottish dirk. I really can't say enough about how amazingly helpful Audra and Mike are, they taught me so much and not just how they do things, but how I can do everything in my own shop even without all the cool tools. Super great people, super great teachers, and some of the best food and company you can get.

    Thank you. Most of my inspiration and motivation for perfection comes from looking at everyone else's work here, it's all pretty spectacular, real art.

    Just in time for Christmas, this kitchen melee helper is made out of a coil spring, maple wood and deer antler. This is my first kitchen knife, and I had some interesting learning curves with it, particularly on the handle. Originally it was supposed to have brass antler brass, but I only had one chance to make the antler piece work, and well some power tools got away with me and successfully changed my handle design. The length of the blade is 4'' and the handle is 4 1/4''.

    All Purpose Kitchen Knife

    For now, I think. I've been known to change my tang designs mid forging process both intentionally and unintentionally, and I've yet to make a handle exactly like the one I initially designed, so who knows. The blade though, that will come out how I planned, maybe not the first time, but I'll get it eventually.

    Okie dokie, thank you so much for all the help. And I did move the bolster back off the blade so it won't get in the way, thank you Zeb for pointing that out.

    Oh, yeah, the blade and handle are both 4 and a quarter inches giving it an overall length of 8 and a half inches while the heel is 1and a quarter inches.

    Okay, so more drastic than I thought, but it would still be a slightly curved edge right? Kind of like this?

    Joel, is this what you're talking about?
  14. I received a request for an all purpose kitchen knife and this is the design I came up with. It's a pretty basic design, flat grind, full tang with a brass bolster and some kind of wood for the handle. All advice is appreciated as kitchen desings are not my forte.

    Second mini Bowie knife

    The blade is 4 inches long and the handle is 3 and a half. The pictures are a little deceiving, they make it look bigger.
