"What if?" has lead me into more trouble than I care to remember, but it such a fun game: "What if Thor had a folding knife?" has lead to this: 13" open, pattern welded blade consisting of a W2 edge, four twisted bars, tripple braid and a spine. Inlayed copper fittings and blackwood. I started carving the first bolster this morning: I am still in two minds about the pommel end, should I add a cap?
Hello! Honestly, I thought it would be much simpler to oven-weld the muffin-dough than to forge-weld the edge to the wrought iron body... boy was I wrong.... But, everything turned out good in the end and both my welding sessions were successful This knife is a woman´s knife from 9th century, somewhat specific to Great Moravia (as far as I know), with it´s riveted antler scales and fulltang construction. I´ve made a modest sheath for it, and impregnated it with hot lard. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the muffins
I finished this little knife today, an order from a 76 year old lady who grew up on a farm where arum lilies flourished. Blade: 1070 Handle: Patinated mild steel with sterling silver raised inlay and sterling silver pinning. Questions and comments welcome.
Hello everyone! Since this is a category in which you can post whatever project. I thought i'd show one of my past projects. A few months ago I made a pipe out of a block of oak. It was quite a hard thing to do because had to drill the shaft at an angle to end in the tobacco chamber. It was a lot of sawing and filing to get the result. Afterwards I sanded it to 600 grid, carved some decoration into it and waxed it with turpentine wax. I also filled the carvings with gold paint to give it more fantasy style. The pipe is fully functional. I figure that I could definitely use these crafts in making scabbards and sword grips. Jasper
