Something Old and Something New

Recommended Posts

I had two opposite visions for the KITH this year, so I decided to make both, and let whoever gets my entry decide. The first one started out a bit rough:



I believe the first or second puck from the left is what ended up as the edge bar. I re-melted it from some wrought iron round bars. 


Meanwhile, the other knife needed somewhat more precise treatment. 


I chose to take a warikomi approach for this knife, the body is from a link of small anchor chain, opened with a chisel for the hearth steel edge. 


Here’s where the blades stand now, the right is made from MagnaCut. I don’t have as many pictures of it yet, but I have something a bit… different planned for the handle. 

That’s it for now, thanks for looking!

Man, your recent work with that hearth steel/iron stuff is truly impressive.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
