Damascus tanto

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

i went off the grid a bit and trow myself into work and forging etc.

 

so finally i have sum thing worth showing. . a Damascus blade made from K600, EN45 and O1.

the Damascus was made by a friend of mine.

 

unfortunately i did not keep it up to Japanese standards.. take a look.

I do not like the notches or serrations. I feel it detracts from an otherwise beautiful blade! Needless to say, well done!

 

Edit: I can't stop looking at the knife second from the bottom, I like the shape of it.

second knife from the top has a curly maple handle and very thin to carry and conceal easily.

 

at first i only had one notch but looked crap. so put 3 in... but that looked stupid haha.
