cable tanto

Recommended Posts

Well i managed to get this one done in my spare time, It has been a busy summer between house hunting and work. Anyways this cable tanto is made from extra improved plow steel. The blade is 9 inches long with an overall length of 12.75 inches. It was made from 3 pieces of cable twisted up, then stacked, then folded a couple of times. I posted one pic and I have more on my site. The link is below, I did not think it was necessary to post alot of pics when a link is quicker. Hope you like http://sites.google.com/site/canadianliveblade/available

Thank-you Tim I will have another one ready soon. Just have to finish bo-hi. I don't know if i should mirror polish the bo-hi or keep it etched.

Nice tanto Neil, interesting pattern, even after the folds and stuff it still retains the cable look. I like the little worm eaten grooves of activity above the hamon.

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
