I have two stilettos which I have made in the past couple of months. the first has a vine climbing up a staircase ending in a flower with silver dot inlays. The second is a gargoyle perched on top of a staircase. both hand carved. The material is mild steel, as it does not need to hold an edge. The third knife is a san-mai kitchen knife, a layer of 1070 and a layer of mild steel, with two-tone handle and storage scabbard. All three are listed on my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/tiaanburgermetalart Thank you for looking.
A year or two ago Tom Sterling posted a thread showing a "holdout stiletto". The idea stuck and about a month ago I decided to make one, a variation on Tom's theme. In order not to make a straight copy I decided on a different blade / handle transition, using gothic arches. I also decided to do a deep relief carving. I used a piece of 1/2" mild steel square bar. Here is the result of my efforts: Questions and comments welcome
