Alright... so - finally I've finished the "little" knife I made from the same billet as I did THIS one. The blade is: Two bars of 126 layers twisted steel + 1 bar (the middle one) of 12 layer non-twisted steel, and ofc. san-mai lamination. The steel is UHB20C and UHB15LM for the damascus, and "Øberg"-steel for the san-mai steel. Hardness at edge is about 63HRC. The blade is hand polished on stones and sand-paper up to#2500 grit - and then buffed to mirror before etching. The handle consists of african ebony, camel bone, 925 sterling silver and vulcanized fiber. Handle is handle is worked by files and needle-files, before being hand polished on paper #400, #1200, and #2500 before buffing on a buffing wheel. There was some discussion around the file-work I did on this one HERE, as I was concerned it looked like crap. However - friendly forumites convinced me I should finish it. I was originally planning on using fossilized mammoth instead of the ebony, but it cracked - so I had to improvise. Ebony was what I had at hand at the moment... Alright - so here are the pics. No fancy stuff - just taken with my mobile camera on my desk at work. Enjoy.... And as always - critique is always welcome - even the negative. Sincerely, Alveprins.
This is a piece I made for myself but decided to sell because I need the money more. The steel is 5160 heat-colored to a deep gold color (400F temper). Overall length is just over 8", with a 3" blade. This is forged from a single piece of steel with the forge marks left in the handle, as well as one small one in the right side of the blade. The handle although being forged from the same piece is actually quite comfortable and offers excellent control in kitchen applications. Asking price is $60 plus shipping, negotiable. I'm willing to make more of these on by request, different blade lengths available, pricing negotiable. Offers to be sent to my email at email@example.com
I did something a little bit different from the usual the other day, and finally got it finished and photographed today. You may have noticed that I've slowed down on production over the past few weeks, and that's because we've been down a man at work. That's ending in the next couple of weeks, though, so I'll be back in the forge a lot more. Anyway, on to the blade. The steel is 5160, and the total length is about six inches. I did a heat color on this to protect it from rust and also because it looks sweet as hell. Not much to tell about this one, really. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. I also include this as kind of a peak behind the curtain on how I do some of my pictures. A towel on top of an ironing board, with a Tums bottle providing support. Pretty simple, but with the two lights and the mirror it works very well.
Hi All, Something a little different today. A nice little Wharncliffe Bladed knife. This one is made from 154 CM thickness from the distributer is at .103 to .113 a little thinner now. 154 CM is a HI-Carbon stainless, if stainless is the way you want to go this would be a good choice of steels. Hardened and tempered twice to a solid Rockwell 59. The scales are made from black paper Micarta and 1/8 “ brass pins. The finish is a hand rubbed satin and the blade is hair popping sharp. I mean really sharp. During the final cleanup I took the top of the second knuckle on my ring finger off and did not feel it till I saw the blood. Can anyone out there relate? While I was just using some hand tools no less. Anyway............This would make a nice EDC, Trout and Bird or if my wife gets her way a really nice Paring knife. No sheath with this one but if you must have one ask and we will work something out. Price shipped to the lower 48 is $70.00 Thanks for looking and comments are always welcome. Ken
