jake cleland Posted September 7, 2011 Share Posted September 7, 2011 so i don't really have any concrete idea of what i'm going to do for this. i know i want to make something with a nice hamon, and a partial wrap, in leather, copper or rawhide. aside from that, i have no clue, so i figure i'll use this thread to just brainstorm ideas in steel until i hit on something that works. first up is a half tang, because i've always wanted to try one. the blade is pretty thin, about 3mm, and the fit of the walnut handle is really good. this is it just out of the quench, with the bark knocked off. you can just make out part of the hamon. the carving is just drawn on atm. i like this one quite a bit, has the look of an old hickory boning knife, and a bit of a green river feel to it, but i don't know if it'll turn out cool enough, and it doesn't really fit the brief yet, so we'll see.
