Coleton posted a topic in Design and CritiqueDo I NEED to grind a specific edge geometry like let's say a 45° angle with a jig on my knives for the secondary bevel? Or could I just grind it for how I want it to cut freehand. Steep for slicing and thicker for chopping?

My First Dagger
Eric Bost posted a topic in Show and TellHello all from North Carolina! This is my first entry to Bladesmiths Forum. I am a beginner and am working diligently to create my forge so i can start learning the Art of blacksmithing. Im 29, and have a LONG road ahead of me to learn this ancient art, but i thought you guys might want to see what kind of stuff i like to do.. Its rough..i know..please dont be too harsh..haha The metal used is Plain steel bar stock from Home Depot, the guard and pommel are from a old furniture bit a neighbor was cutting up, and the wrap is "magic tape" over crude oak slabs and copper pins. The beads are hand ground deer antler with a antler tip on one over leather. Me and the wife call this "Pheonix"..you know the story.. I work on my front porch with a small drill vise and occasionally i get to use the neighbors workshop until i can put my forge together.. I have a anvil made of a old bit of railroad and ill be upgrading as funds permit to allow better projects..any help is appreciated..lol
