Vladimir Zubkov - fire strikers.

Hello everybody. I am not knifemaker. Sometimes I am making axe heads but most of time - fire strikers. If it not fit for forum I am asking moderators to remove this post. But maybe it will be interesting to somebody. English is not my native. I make grammatical mistakes. Main material for my fire strikers - high carbon steel У10А ( similar to 1095 steel ) All my fire strikers from high carbon steel  usually water quenched without tempering.   This is the last one - "Bakunava". Bakunawa is a creature of Philippine mythology. Dragon that eating the Moon. Cause of lunar eclipses.

You have a steady hand.  I like the first one with the creature eating the sphere.  Did you braze/solder the sphere in or is it a punch?  Very clean work.
