My First Knife - Seax


Recommended Posts

This is the first knife I've ever made. Just finished it up today. The blade is 10.5" long and the handle is 7". Forged out of 1095 steel, handle is curly maple finished with Tru-Oil, and the bolster is a piece of damascus I made. Lots of flaws; the blade is too thin I think, and I could have done a better job where the blade meets the bolster.
