Starting some new work, small Bowie


Recommended Posts

Started just fooling around in the shop last night when the wine kicked in... I meant inspiration. What started as cleaning up and thinking about a new touch mark turned into making one and then making a blade to test it out on. 
 

My old touch mark was too big causing me to have to set it multiple times giving me bad lines a lot. Sometimes instead of chancing it I would leave it too light and almost sand it away. I am pretty happy with this one and the blade I made to go with it. 
 

the blade was a piece of 5160 that was going to be a hatchet, I set it aside as scrap long ago. I did do a differential heat treat. You can see the color near the tip. I’m curious if this will give me a homon. I haven’t been successful with one yet.
