here is the first blade of four Iám working on. They are made from W2 and 1095 that i stacked in billets forge welded and folded. They are made from scraps I had around the shop. I can't remember how many times i folded them though. Overall length of the knife is 17 inches with the blade around 12 inches. The handle is made from black micarta with brass decorative menuki. The sheath is made from kydex, and designed to be worn on small of the back or on left side. The rest of the knives are basically the same with each hamon a little different. I will post pics of other knives as i get them done. hope you like.

Nice.

My life is like shaving with a razor sharp machete. It's a bit awkward and I feel a sting every now and then, but in the end I'm happy with the results.

that is all around cool, the orientation of the sheath and the heaviness, at least in appearance of the blade.

Thank you I might be doing a katana like this. with lots of sori. I have to do a chef knife first though for a customer.
