My Christmas KITH

Recommended Posts

I finally got my new forge put together and started hammering away on this today.  I didn't get very far,  but its starting to take shape.

Well, this one picked up a good sized crack during the quench.  One of the downsides of recycled steel I guess.  I started a new one, but everything is going to have to go perfect if I'm going to get it done in time.

Dont feel bad. my first attempt shattered into 4 pieces when i quenched, my fault mind you. But hey my current one does look better atleast.

Can't wait to see it John!

My second attempt was an outright, abysmal failure.

I tried to get really fancy, but my aspirations outpaced my forge welding skills.  I'll revisit it sometime in the future, but at least I learned a good way to not go about about multibar construction. :D

The good news is that I failed fast enough that I was able to crank out another attempt and the third try was the charm!  There's one issue that I'm waiting on an answer to, but if that isn't a showstopper, I should have it done in time.

Must say i love the idea of what youre trying to do there. I wanted to do a tanto design but it didnt quite work out. I worry mines to thin but its made from steel designed for stress so it should hold^_^
