John Smith Posted August 15, 2008 Share Posted August 15, 2008 (edited) I have been busy these past weeks. The first dagger is made of Aldos 1084 with a nickle silver guard and plain steel butt cap and walnut handle. The second dagger is made from an olf file and is roughly 10 inches of blade and total with tang of 15 inches. The next blade is some of Aldos W-2 forged and heat treated the hamon is beautiful, I started the polish yesterday. The next blade is a forged tanto made from a high carbon rail road spike. I have had som problems heat treating it though, I had hoped to see a hamon, but the initial polish revealed nothing so I re-treated it and ended up with more sori than I wanted, i will post a ned picture of it after the polish as i figure it has a hard edge since I got so mush sori. The next blade is finished and in nice wood settings I have no idea what type of wood it is, so any input on this is appriciated. The steel is again some of Aldos w-2 and the hamon is beautiful on this as well, and it is very sharp this blade is for sale as well pm me if interested. The last is my sword that I have been working on for some time, the steel is W-2 from Don Hanson Thanks for looking and please let me know what you guys and girls think about my work.

Once, giants lived in the Earth, Conan. And in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Crom, and they took from him the enigma of steel. Crom was angered. And the Earth shook. Fire and wind struck down these giants, and they threw their bodies into the waters, but in their rage, the gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield. We who found it are just men. Not gods. Not giants. Just men. The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, Conan. You must learn its discipline. For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts.[Points to sword]This you can trust Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
