A Stabby Damascus Blade

Recommended Posts

For the last four days I've been working in the Draper's shop in one of their knife making classes, learning the tricks of the trade, and in that time this is the blade I made under their supervision. It is 124 layers in a random pattern with a brass guard and kings wood for the handle. It measures 4 and a 1/4'' on the blade and 8 and a 1/2'' overall. It is my own design, inspired by the Scottish dirk.

I really can't say enough about how amazingly helpful Audra and Mike are, they taught me so much and not just how they do things, but how I can do everything in my own shop even without all the cool tools. Super great people, super great teachers, and some of the best food and company you can get.

Nicely done Faye. Right there is the proof that working with a good mentor in a hands-on situation will lower the learning curve dramatically.

Of course it helps that you have ample natural talent too.
