looks good. Nice welding, and a very long weld, too.

The handle looks cool, and the ring is a nice touch.


I am not brave enough to weld 1075 to L6, because of different rates of expansion/contraction during heat treatment.


I had a laminate I put together for a pommel cap that was made of 1084 and L6 and O1 tear itself apart upon quenching in canola. Your mileage may vary, however. Obviously, you didn't have that problem. That is just why I am afraid to do that sort of combo.


impressive work. thanks for sharing it with us.

Beautiful work, really.


I'm very interested in the buttcap. I've had a heck of a time figuring out how to make an integral ring which extends from the pommel. My personal solution, when reproducing a Gotlandic knife with a similar style pommel, was a crazy two part deal. Your work looks much higher quality.


Any chance I could convince you to share a close up, or explain your process?

I love it... if I were to nitpick I'd say the point is rather short, but the gentle curve of the edge more than makes up for it...:)
