First blade


Recommended Posts

I finally forged my first blade. 1095 steel from Aldo. 9 1/2" overall, 4 7/8" blade. After inspecting it closely, I think I will work a little more refining the bevels. Then on to file work, rough polish, normalizing and heat treating ect. What do you fellows think? My forge is a Lively type charcoal burner.

Hi Rick. I didn't know you'd found your way over here as well.


I'm looking forward to seeing the blade -- once I get home. Photobucket pics are blocked by our web filter here at work. Grr.
