Wrought iron and w2 san mai hunting knife wip


Recommended Posts

Another commission I have been working on, the customer wanted a new working knife to carry when stalking.

He also has a passion for japanese swords, so wanted it to be an adaptation of a traditional japanese style, I felt that using the wrought iron for this would aid the aesthetic, I have deliberately left some of the incursions to make it look antique.

This project has been made with only hand tools.

Thank you Justin, I try to improve on each project, not just fit and finish, but also time taken , and amount of fuel used.

I do need to be careful at times, as sometimes get a little too advance for my skill levels, that said, it's best to keep pushing out of your comfort zone, to ensure the progression doesn't stagnate.

that is a nice combination. The gnarly wrought gives it a great look. I missed it - what was the steel in the middle?

thanks for showing so much of process.
