  1. Ladies and Gentlemen... Let me present Silf Brandr - the Silver Blade! Blade in a san-mai lamination from a 3-bar multibar billet - making the lamination count a total of 7 pieces. My standard railroad steel for the body, with ferrier's rasps and saw-mill steel for the folded edge-steel, with a core of high carbon tool steel. Handle in African Ebony, American Holly, with spacers of vulcanized fiber and brass. the finger guard is in moose antler. Sheath is in tooled and dual colored leather. Mahogany red background, and antique black stain borders. Stitched with Tiger Th
  2. I finally got a small coal forge put together from half of a 35-gallon air compressor, some grating material and 2.5" exhaust pipe...it's been a good while since I last did benchwork regularly so this project was all about knocking the rust off of old skills and trying to remember the process. I've been saving up some dull files to send to Boggs and just pulled one out to try on this venture - I think it turned out well in spite of me, and learning how to use a new forge. Not completed yet, putting some finish on the handle and polishing out some bits here and there, but I'll update with the f
  3. Hi all, So i finished this skinner, my first challenge whit a hidden tang construction. The blade is Rail road laminated on one side whit 12067 (ball bearing steel) for a good edge. The 12067 side has some burn mark "swirls" i made a while experimenting whit clay. Handle is bone, red coper and douglas, oal 19cm.
  4. Hey guys, I figured it was time to show some of my latest work. I've been at this for about a year and a half now trying to learn all I could from YouTube and reading, but nothing beats experience and besides that's more fun than reading. I take criticism well and invite it, I'm looking forward to the comments. The first is a skinner, 4 inch blade of 1095, flat ground and polished to about 600 before a light buffing. The handle is 4.25 inch's long and I line the tang with blue sf spacer material. The handle itself is stabilized king wood. The second smaller knife is a pokko inspir
  5. Hello everyone!I'm new on here. This is my first forged knife and first knife I've made in about 17 years! The Blade is made from a file and it was edge quenched in oil then etched in vinegar. The handle is made of apple wood and deer antler. I'm not entirely happy with it but I'm just happy to learn from the mistakes I made on this one. I had to use a diamond file to get a better angle on the blade after I already heat treated, tempered, and etched. So I need to do a little more finishing work on the blade as seen in the whole knife picture. Criticism is welcome!
