Hello everyone!

I wasn't here for a longer time...so happy New Year!!!

This is the first finished knife in this year. The blade is forged Elmax stainless steel, the handle is a combination of bruyere wood and copper. The sheath is made of leather, bruyere and copper. Total length is 17,5 cm/ 6,9 inch. The blade is 7 cm/ 2,75 inch.

Thanks for watching and comments!

I really love this knife. It has the subtle form and curves that I have been attracted to lately. The handle and the bolster are marvelous. great job! thanks for sharing.

That is a very, very, nice! What is forging Elmax like, out of curiosity? The briar looks like a nice choice for handle material.

Very nice work! I second Bruce's curiosity on forging with Elmax.

I am just starting a project that will use Elmax in the final version, but given the price I paid for the Elmax, the prototype I am currently making is 15N20.

I had been planning to just grind the blades, but I would rather forge them if I can. I would love to hear how the Elmax behaved during forging and heat treat?

Thanks in advance,
