Hey, I'm Jim, I'm a new user to the forum, and I'd like to hear any critique on my work. I've been doing this for a little while, but there is always new stuff to learn. This is the child of a bowie knife and a persian knife (not really sure as to the name) It was intended to be just a bowie, but I forged the tip a little thin, but I think I like it. Steel is from a buggy spring, It had good sparks and hardened well in oil, tempered back to a brown-purple color. I'm not quite finished, but I thought I'd show what I had. Blade is about 11 inches, the handle about 5.5.
