I've been on these forums for some years now, mostly keeping my mouth shut.

 

I promised myself a few years ago to make knives.

 

I've studied for years,, I've read all I could lay my hands on, but at some point you need hands on experience and it was time I got it.

 

And now this is the fruit of my first forging session.

A utility intregral forged from 15mm rebar, quenched in brine. 2,5" cutting edge, 7,5" OAL.

 

I'm actualy quite surprised it actualy looks like a knife :P

 

Just having fun while waiting for my steel to arrive.

 

Critisisme is always welcome

Looks pretty good to me.

How did the rebar harden up?

Looks like it'd make a pretty decent general use knife or a shop knife.

I've got me a little blacksmith knife I made that I need to get a small pocket sheath made for, then it'll be taking the place of my Spyderco folder, or they'll take turns as my EDC.

Thanks for the encouragement,

 

The rebar did not harden to any usefull degree but the knife is still used regularly.

 

Thanks again.
