2 small kiridashi kogatana, 1.2842+1.2767 wild damascus


Recommended Posts

after taking my time to finish those two, I just sewed two small sheets for them

data: wild damascus, about 120 layers of 2/3 1.2842(90MnCrV8) and 1/3 1.2767(X45NiCrMo4)

made at the Bremeker Hammer (http://www.bremecker-hammer.de/)


the broader one is one side flat grounded with an 28mm edge, 146mm long

just before hardening and without the etch

the smaller one has a blade of 26mm and is sharpened on both sides, both are cutting like a razor, 145mm long

they are perfect to cut leather, I used them for the sheets

and very accurate in cutting wood


I hardened them to 56 HRC, which makes it easy enough to resharpen on a wetstone

I like how everything is rounded except the edge... lovely work.

Mr 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
