damascus Bodice daggers .....again

Recommended Posts

greetings and happy HoHo to all

here are the last of the dasmascus bodice dags from that scrap I got from John Harris nicklle damascus. at last post , I had finished one, WIP one and distroyed the rest I got from the scrap, well I got lucky, and flash of somthing(most likely desperation <LOL>) came to Me when I was at the Stroman forge last 2 weeks ago one of the twistys has split and seporated , so I just refluxed and hammered round cleaned it up and "TA-DA" maneged to salvage one of the distroyed pieces

attached are pics........................yes horrible pics (these have given Me the MOST difficult shooting Iv ever tried to date)

dag 1 is a "lemon style" 3/16 tapering to a point .300 type stainless bolster and desert ironwood handle

dag 2 is the salvaged one , twisted then hammered round,red bronze bolster and mahoggany handle(I think its houndous)

feel free to leave any and all comments,wisecracks,insults or kinky one liners

all the best

@ Miles

I usely do om the monolithic dags I put a small throat in them

and twist the full length

the last damascus bodice dag I posted was full twisted

the "lemon style" are easier and less chance of a blow up

heres a pic of the first dag I posted
