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! O
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
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
