  1. Hi All, Was busy this week and made these 2 daggers. I would like to sell them as a set. One as a belt knife the other for behind your back. I have been working with a new Paragon oven this week, so my controls of the hardening and tempering are more fine-tuned than previously. These are rock solid at a Rockwell 61. I tried to put a hardened drill bit into another piece of metal that I treated the same way and got nowhere. Ditto for the file test. So they ams what they ams.

Then I moved on to making armor and I made a few shield bosses, an articulating elbow and a pauldron. Then Christmas (2011) my wife got me a little forge and I graduated myself to blade smithing. First thing I did was hammer dow
