Dagger wip


Karim

Recommended Posts

I want to share my progress in making this dagger. It all started whit a chunk of rusted iron my gf dug out of the garden and she challenged me to make a knife. I decided to forge whitout cleaning the steels and added RR (deaminated scrap i was testing whit) and some bandsaw leftovers for the core. As you can imagine the welding was a slow process of deamination refluxing and compacting. Against my exaptations the resulting billet was solid but not fitted for any kind of edge. I decided to add a file in capturing the billet and a birds beak construction for the tip. The result is pleasing as it contains some fun welding and it survived the quench.

Now for a handle design.... Let me know what you think, thanks for watching.
