WOOTZBLADES IN PROCESS


Recommended Posts

I have the honer to make a yambiya and a sabber blade, from 1,5% carbon wootz (crucble steel) for a customer.

I had about 200 glowing and forging therms to bring this blade out from the woozcake.

Here the first pictures from the forged jambiya.

 

Will be continue.

Fine looking piece Uli Ilook forward to seeing it completed.

Also the answer to how it was forged. Did you use fullers to put in the ridge?

Some days laterer, new pictures from the blades.

 

The daggerblade is now in the handfinishing process with stones and had a etching to show his beauty.

It is like skulpturing a blade from a round something into a beautifull shaped objekt, a blade, yeah...

The sabberblade is growing out of the wootzbar, I hope it will come up so good like the dagger.

@daniel,

I grinde with a angelgrinder, beltgrinder, file, stones and the finish I will make with sandpaper.

 

as said... damn nice work! ;)... I love that ridge.

what are your plans on finishing the whole blade?? (handle type, fittings...) are you planing to go traditional or anything different?
