W2 fighter/bowie

Hey folks :)


Finally getting back in the swing of things and making knives to share here :)


This one is clay hardened W2... in fact it's the blade from that thread I threw together about how I've been polishing clay hardened blades. Jim Cooper really outdid himself. I've never seen a photo that displayed both activity in a hamon AND an overall complimentary view of the knife.... My kudos to my friend Coop!

MASTER leather craftsman Mr. Paul Long's handiwork here... gosh damn that man is good!!! :o


Thanks for looking :)

Great hamon activity. I have seen that palm swell on your scandi blades. Hehehe, makes my blades look like trash :blink:

I am quite impressed with the polish and hamon. Of course, the whole thing looks good, but man, that is what we all hope to get when we do that sort of heat treat. Really beautiful.
