Wootz nakiri with purple heart handle and curly ash saya

Recommended Posts

So i finally finished up a blade with the wootz i forged out from fire and brimstone. I want to thank jeff pringle for his insight into wootz and edward braun for his challenge to create a hamon.

steel: homemade crucible steel/wootz

Handle: purple heart and lightening strike carbon fiber

saya: curly ash

Note: there is some staining due to using it on food before taking pics

Sweet steel Nic. What was your experience like forging and working it?

This stuff is super tough and finicky. I used the power hammer to draw it out and then a hand hammer to make it wide enough.It will start cracking and you have to stop and grind them out.
