New multibar san-mai hunter


Recommended Posts

Just finished this little thing in order to finance some motorcycle restoration and preparation for the summer vacation. :)

Blade length: 11 cm
Hardness at edge: 58 HRC
Handle length: 13 cm
 

Blade stats:
Two bars of 15 layers folded and twisted 15n20 and 15-steel, in a sanmai lamination with Øberg-steel in the middle.

Handle stats:
2800 year old Russian bog oak from Siberia, vulcanized fiber, brass sheet, copper, and mosaic pin.

The blade is reaaally thin - like 2,7mm thick. Flexes ever so slightly.

I hope to make the sheath by next weekend.. I have so much screwing around (literately) to do with my bike atm.

Sincerely, Alveprins.

If someone had asked me if I would like something with a green liner and a mosaic pin, I would have said "no"...

But man, you pulled it off with this one!

A very creative presentation.

Thank you Sir. :)

 

Actually, I used the green spacer only because I am out of black.... :P

 

Black - somehow - is never out of fashion. ;)

I heard that next year they are going to proclaim that black is the new black!  (OK, you might have to be from my part of the world to think that is funny...)

I actually dig the splash of color.  I also like the handle shape.

Interestingly - this shape was not initially planned.. I just eyeballed and freestyled it on the belt grinder - then with a rasp and some files - and this was the end result. I am quite pleased with it myself. I will attempt to recreate something along this particular style for future knives as well. :)

Nice work man. I love the style. The copper is nice and once it starts to patina i think it will look even better. Keep at it.
