My First Knife

Recommended Posts

This was the first knife I ever made a few years ago. It was inspired by a few aspects of the Lord of the Rings props. I didn't take very many photos of the process as it was not much of a process. At this point no one had taught me anything about bladesmithing and so everything that went into this knife was from my own experimentation.

 

 

The steel is a 1095 file, the wood is cocobolo, and the pommel and guard are made of an alloy I was working on at the time that looks gold, doesn't oxidize, and is more wear-resistant than steel so it stays shiny (it is by no means as strong as steel though). You can see the difference between it and brass as the rivets in the handle are normal brass and have a different color.

A good effort for your first attempt. I am sure with the acquisition of greater knowledge and skill you will improve.
