Damascus Guardian


Murat Klein

Recommended Posts

Hello Forumites

 

Here we go with the last Bowie I finished up for the Show next weekend.

 

Its a large Bowie. The Inspiration of that pice came from some Osmanic Sword I have seen the last time.

 

The damascus 1.2842 + C75ni8 was forged by myself and just has 26 layers.

The handle I made from a nice black pice Ebony Wood with some abalone inlays at the pommel. The fitting for the guard are Blacked.

 

I am sorry for the bad pics. I am not able to make good pics off such big knives.

 

 

Regards Murat

Awesome knife Murat. I love how it's so dark with a few bright spots to offer some high contrast.

I love the lines of the blade and the handle. It all flows together well and I think that the damascus really compliments the design.

Beautiful knife. I love it.

I really like th dark overtones as well with the accents.

Nicely done!

 

Is the darkness of the blade solely from the metals and the way they etch or did you do some additional treatment?

which method did you use to blacken the guard?

Wow that is gorgeous Murat! That scimitar style blade is my very favorite.

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Wow What a great response. Thank you guys.

The Darkness of the blade came out by a few time etching progress where i wipe the Blade off with some soft pads and etching it again...

 

For the Guard I used Gun Blueing Stuff whats called " Klever Schnellbrünierung " here in Germany.
