Don Abbott Posted October 6, 2021 Share Posted October 6, 2021 I know everyone has blades they forged and maybe even heat treated laying around waiting for inspiration to finish them out. I've got blades that have been waiting ten years or more. Here are three of a batch of four I finished up a while back. I sold the forth one without getting a picture, and it was probably the best looking of the lot. This is the big one... 1084, copper, and stag: This is the middle one. 1084, copper, and stag: And this is the baby of the bunch. I don't know how long this has been in my "to do" box. It is an old Black Diamond file, steel pins, and as Dr. Jim would say, "bovine ivory" slabs (sounds so much more dignified than "cow bone"): And here's everybody all dressed up: That center-seam job looks a lot better in real life than in this picture. Hat's off to Mr. Ellerbe. 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
