Forgery Is Hard Work!

Recommended Posts

First knife, used an old b7 stud I found lying around, I'm not sure what steel it is but I know they are decent carbon steel. Think it was about 1 1/2" so as you can imagine it's a lot of metal to move! lol I've got Popeyes right arm now!

But after some blood, sweat and tears I've ended up with this, quenched in oil and tempered, it's holding a good edge.

Brass pins and reclaimed teak for the handle. I'm pretty pleased and have learnt lessons for the next one.

Cheers ant
