Lukas MG Posted February 5, 2017 Share Posted February 5, 2017 Fairbairn Sykes fighting knifeHere‘s something I‘ve been wanting to make for a long time and just a short while ago, another member posted his version of it, giving me the final nudge to get started with it as soon as my current projects allow. The Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife is one of the most elegant modern fighting knife designs I‘ve come across. It has a very graceful shape and wonderful lines.Of course I‘m going to do my version of it, not a direct copy. Here‘s the start, the rough blade after angle grinding and then after clean-up on the belt grinder and some filing, ready for heat treat. Steel is 80CrV2, 6mm stock.It‘s always a pleasure how quickly and easily these little blades can be made. I‘m so used to working on swords that I have a wholly different expectation regarding speed of progress. http://www.lukasmaestlegoer.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
