2 small kiridashi

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody. Here's a picture of a couple small kirdashi. I've been playing around with texturing techniques and I wanted a small quick project to try them out on so I settled on kiridashi since they're quick and easy to forge and grind. After I got done with the basic forging and ground the edge I painted a design on the handles and etched them. Then, after heat treating the quench left them nice and black, so I sanded down the highlights to give them a bit more of contrast. Let me know what you think!

That's a nice pair of little knives there :) The texturing turned out quite well. It really fits the style of the blades. The highlight sanding is a nice touch, too- it really brings out the contrast and gives them a finished look.
