Maybe Making Some Improvement/Progress?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So this is the first blade I forged (final shaping and bevels anyway) with the dogface hammer I made a while back... started with 3/16X1-1/2 1095 bar stock. 

I forged in the bevels, then ended up deciding to do a full flat grind. Not at all because the bevels weren’t even and I didn’t want them to keep chasing them upward on blade. Nope, wasn’t because of that at all :lol:

Anyway, I do think I’m starting to make some improvement, or it could just be confirmation bias on my part lol. 

I did a 320 grit finish on the blade, 220 on the G10 scales for grippyness. Pretty sure that’s the technical term :blink:

Nice job on that harpoon point blade.  The progression of photos really shows that the nicest finished knife started out looking like something the cat dragged in.

Nice finishing work Eric.  Don't take offense but you might want to tune your hammer face for a flatter angle of attack.

Finished knife is really well done.   BTW, I received the nice files from you.   You can ship this knife to the same address:D

No offense taken sir. This was the first blade forged with my dogs head hammer, and I was kind of still trying to figure out if the issue was my use of the tool, or it’s ergonomics. I agree though, it needs tweaking

Besides redressing the face to your hammer you might be hitting your work a bit too hard.

Finally got around to trying to figure out kydex sheath making... ended up being pretty comfortable to carry and use.

Sorry to keep adding pics, but this shows the handle at its final finish
