15" meat sword


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I was lucky enough to have the use of a power hammer to forge this beast. It's the longest blade I've made so far and it makes me want to make an actual sword. I had to get a new quench tank to harden it because it wouldn't fit in my old one. I have a video testing it on my Instagram, here.

 

The blade is 15" long, forged from 1084. The handle is Turkish walnut and is secured with epoxy. The overall length is 20.5"

I like that yataghan recurve. B)

It's actually pretty straight along the edge. It just looks curved.

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

Thank you! I ended up giving it to my dad as a retirement gift.
