First knife in awhile

Recommended Posts

So this is my fourth blade and its been a long time coming. I took a very long hiatus from smithing because of my son and career change yadayada so this blade is my first completed one in a few years.

Blade is w2, fittings are bronze and handle is antler and yellowheart.

I wanted to make something really grim hence the skulls the whole concept ended up sort of going in a barbarian pirate direction which is cool.

Anyways here ya go.

The lady who I made it for wanted something personal worked into it and her boyfriend is of irish decent so I carved some celtic inspired stuff on the wood.

The blacksmith and the artist reflect it in their art.

They forge their creativity,closer to the heart.

The blade is polished to 1700 grit the black stuff on the polished steel is actually where I etched it.

Etching didn't respond the way I hoped so I left a little to match the theme of grim.
