  1. Although I specialize in Roman Swords and Scabbards from 300bc to 4th Century ad, I am looking to branch out and sway off my regular trail and make a few historically accurate Rome knives, not Pugiones. If you have any reference materials, research information, drawings or photo's of Roman Knives, Utility, Folders, fixed blades and curved blades from 300bc to the 4th Century ad (Not pugiones) I would like to start this thread. I think it would be interesting to gather a group of people here... share... and maybe create some works on our own and post them here. This post is not just for blade makers, but for researchers, historians, those with interests in archeology and relics, lover's of Rome, and lovers of small historical knives and blades. One of the first Roman Blades I want to make is what I believe is a Friction Folder. (I have never made a friction folder and am open to advice.) I have pictured the type I am looking to make on my first round on this opening post. I usually work with 1075, 1084 and 1095 high carbon steels. These examples are of Zoomorphic (animal type hilt/grips.). Lions, Leopards, Panthers... I will be making the one of that has the opened blade with Camel bone as the handle/scales. So, lets have some fun and generate some interests from all walks of blade enthusiasts... and work to create some things together... What do you say? I'd be happy to submit photos of my progress as well. The Challenge is On! In His Service and Yours... --Patrick Rhema Creations LLC
