First Knife


C K Sears

Recommended Posts

Here's one I made two years ago in school. Stock removal, and I(and the two other students making a knife) barely heat treated them, only to a light yellow tinge in the metal.

I'm not sure what steel we used, all I found out from my teacher is that it's a carbon tool steel. The blade's 6" long with a 4" handle, and I got a bit overzealous when filing and sanding the blade in the middle, as it curves inwards.

At the moment, yes. Hopefully in four years I'll set up a forge and work on that, but that's after university.
