What everyone else said. The lines are so clean on it. I love it and I love the patina on it as well. What did you use to patina the steel?

I know this is an older post, however i am interested to know is the 5160 a solid piece which was slit and drifted or was it a folded construction? 

Not expecting a reply, but one would be nice. 

Thanks :)

Hi, Chris.  I'll make and educated guess here.  Due to the chromium content 5160 tends to not to want to forge weld to itself so I expect that it was from a bar that was slit and drifted.


HELP...I'm a twenty year old trapped in the body of an old man!!!
