First Pattern Welded Knife with D-Guard


Recommended Posts

First time forge welding at the home forge 100% by hand.  Mixed 5 layers of mild steel with 4 layers of saw blade.  Cut in half and twisted each bar with opposite twists.  Forge welded the two together and then forge welded a high carbon out layer.20170218_151713.jpg20170218_151655.jpg

Was trying to get the "v" pattern down the middle but realized I had to remove too much material to get the desired shape so came out with this:

Blued the mild steel D guard... which darkened the brass and I'll likely go back in and clean it up.  My peening of the tang left something to be desired, but this was also the first time I tried that and I managed to run out of patience before doing it right.  Handle is cherry.
