  1. This one was fun to build, just a little guy for a coworker to give as a gift. Steel is 1095 that has been cold blued. The handle is ebony with black G10 liners and brass tube for the pins. Paracord lanyard and a coyote tan kydex sheath. I etched my maker's mark and the end users initials in the blade, no fancy setup just a big 6V battery and a couple alligator clips. Spine thickness is about 4mm. Thanks for looking! Constructive criticism is always welcome. I'm here to learn how to be as good as possible.
  2. So I had a friend reach out to me looking for a very specific kind of sheath. It was a weird request since normally it's the other way people looking for knives haha. He wanted a sheath he could connect to molle for when he's backcountry dirtbiking. He said I have creative freedom with the knife. 1095 steel cold blued "Sans Peur" without fear etched into the blade (his family motto) The scales are aluminum honeycomb and black resin with black g10 liners. The sheath is kydex with a plastic molle strap for mounting. edit* will definitely post from my computer next time haha the photos rotated themselves for some reason
  3. Ok fellow smiths. Here is my first forged knife. It’s from an old willys Jeep leaf spring (so I’m assuming it’s 5160). Took me quite a while to get it to this point as when I first started I had WAAAAYYYY too much material for the design I had. I ended up cutting a bunch off and re forging my edge. Once I was down to the correct amount of material I was able to get it down to the correct feeling and balance. Next time I make this design I will make the handle shorter so it has a more controlled feel. Next will be to do the heat treatment process and make a sheath! Hope you enjoy! Ok, here’s the update!!! A while ago I finished up my first ever forged knife! I used instant coffee to get that dark grey petina. The kydex sheath I also made myself.
  4. Hi, I'm new here and I wanted to show you some sheaths I've done, comment that I'm just an amateur and I do this as a hobby. The sheaths are, for the most part, kydex lined with leather A greeting 4C033B07-63B1-4883-8993-C5CD1F521BF6.mp4
  5. Hi All, I had a small piece of O-1 so I made a small dagger out of it. Mirror finish with Rosewood scales and two 1/8 inch brass pins. This knife and the sheath that comes with it are meant to be worn in the small of your back. I keep mine on the strong-arm side of the back center belt loop. It could also be worn in a cross draw configuration. When worn behind the back it is almost impossible to see. The sheath protrudes only about ½ inch below your belt the rest is covered by the belt its self. I have been wearing mine for a week now and know one has seen it yet. This is a real nice way to carry a full tang knife and not be real obvious about it. Works well as a holdout or last ditch knife if you follow. Price including sheath delivered to the lower 48. $85.00 Metal: O-1 to a Rockwell 60, tempered twice. Overall length: 5 7/8 inches Blade length: Tip to scale is 2 ¾ inches Blade width: ¾ inch Scales: Rosewood with two 1/8 inch pins Widest part of the scales: 1 inch and about ½ inch thick. Very comfortable in the hand. Sharpened on both edges to a hair popping sharp. Let the pictures speak for them selves Thanks for looking; your comments are always welcome. Ken
