Recommended Posts

Hello,

I nearly finished this Herrenmesser.

85mm blade from 3mm 1.2442

11cm handle,

101gr.

Soldered guard from marine bronze,

Spacer from Alu, copper, mammoth,

handle from buffalo horn.

Still need to polish again the handle and it's finished!

As per usual, very very nice, can I ask why there is a space between the guard an the blade?is there a reason the guards don’t touch the bottom of blade properly if tbat makes sense?

Hello,

several reasons: Easier to sharpen, estetics and soldering the guard is easier as I won't touch the edge with the flame and so maybe soften the steel.

But at the end, I think it's more estetic reasons :D As I like when the ricasso has the same width as the ferrule under the guard.

I once made a knife without this notch, the edge finishing directly on the guard - some hunters prefer this, as the blade can't get catched up.

Yeah I think it looks better with the notch, but thought there would be a reason for it, every day is a school day 😀 thanks for sharing an keep em coming, can you show us how you sharpen your blades ?😀

I get an edge with Lansky, get off the burr with a fine belgian wet stone and after hone it on a stropping leather. From than on, normally the leather is enough.

Can see that notch introducing two stress points! Beautiful knife, I'd just prefer it aesthetically and functionally without the knotch 👍
