Sam Salvati Posted August 2, 2009 Share Posted August 2, 2009 (edited) Got the bug to get something done today, got in the shop and christened my Chuck Robinson anvil with it's first hammering, I grabbed some 1095 and forged out a sort of cleaver. I found my Satanite in the move of all my stuff out of the garage so we could get a slab and footer poured so I decided to try my hand at a hamon on it. IT WORKED! Quenched in Park's, it got a bit more forward curve in the process and the hamon is very nice! It is in the oven tempering now. I can probably say it's the sharpest edge I have put on any blade, and it has VERY fine edge geometry, very scary! Going to do a base of leather and parachord wrap over that, not sure on black or deep red or some camo type stuff. Edited August 2, 2009 by Sam Salvati Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
