Matching Daggers 8.5 " and 6.5/8 inches Zebrawood scales


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Was busy this week and made these 2 daggers. I would like to
sell them as a set. One as a belt knife the other for behind your back. I have
been working with a new Paragon oven this week, so my controls of the hardening
and tempering are more fine-tuned than previously. These are rock solid at a
Rockwell 61. I tried to put a hardened drill bit into another piece of metal
that I treated the same way and got nowhere. Ditto for the file test.

 

So they ams what they ams. (Just dated myself and $5 dollars
off if you know who I am talking about.)

 

The Specifics: The larger one.

Steel: Aldo’s 3/16ths 1095 hollow grind (concave) on a
5-inch wheel a very sharp

Hardness: 61

Length: 8.5 inches

Length: Tip to scale 4 7/8 inches

Blade width: 1 inch at the widest

Distance across the Guard: 2 inches

Handle Material: Zebrawood

Handle Length: 3 5/8 inches

Handle Width: 7/8 inches

Handle Height: 7/8
inches narrower at the blade a little thicker near the end

Balance point is just behind the Guard.

 

Price for the set including shipping is $225; add another
$25 for 2 sheaths

 

Price for just the larger one $135 including shipping add
another $15 for the sheath

 

The Specifics: The smaller one.

5-inch wheel and very sharp.

Hardness: 61

Length: 6 5/8 inches

Length: Tip to scale 3.5 inches

Blade width: 7/8 inch at the widest

Distance across the Guard: 1 5/16 inches

Handle Material: Zebrawood

Handle Length: 3 1/8 inches

another $15 for the sheath

I know of whom you speak... too bad I can't buy the set, very nicely done! B)

I particularly like the tapered extension of the ricasso up the center of the larger. At 61 Rc they will be nice quick razors. That would get me in trouble... cause they look like sweet throwing knives. :ph34r:

Hi,

 

I figured some one would understand and be of my generation. You know when I was making them I thought of making a 3rd as a throwing knife. The balance and weight is right on the money for the larger one. I think I would probably bring the Rc down to a 56-57 though. I am pretty good at throwing but sometimes it gets off vertical and at a 61 I think it would crack the tip off.

Price reduction, both knives with behind the back inside the belt Kydex sheaths, shipped to the lower 48 $125.00 for the set. I am looking to purchase a milling machine and there is one available and I am about $200 short so help me out if you can.


Both blades with sheaths delivered to the lower 48 for $125.00. Paypal preferred.
