Hey out of curiosity what kind of steel is the ring knife made out of? I'm interested because I've got some wrenches at home I've broken and want to forge. Nice work by the way! Excellent form and execution.

The repurposed sheepshears are my favorite. Cool look!

thank you. alan, me too :).

ring key is marked chrome vanadium - but i don't know what specific type of steel is.

for each keyring knife or file knife - i quench a little piece and smash it with the hammer. if the piece will broke - it will be a decent knife, if it bends - it goes to trash :).

creative as heck. I am with Alan (I often say that), the shear-to-knife move is brilliant.
