I am offering up my very first forged blade. This is kind of a special one for me, but I hope to forge many more blades in the future. I forged this from 1/2″ W1 drill rod, with 1% carbon. HT done by me in my evenheat kiln, triple normalized for grain refinement.
Blade length: 3-1/4″
Thickness: .145 at the ricasso. Distally tapered.
Hand rubbed finish
Curly Hawaiian Mango (there’s an inclusion in the wood on the presentation side. Doesn’t effect the knife at all).
Sculpted ergonomic handle
Nickel Silver guard
Brown leather sheath
$175 USD shipped TYD in Conus and Canada. I will also ship to other areas, just email or PM me for a shipping quote. First to say I’ll take it, followed by a PM or email gets it. Posted on multiple sites, so I will go by time stamp. I take paypal, EMT, cash, or cheque.
Thanks for looking. Any comments or questions are welcomed.
I offer a lifetime common sense warranty against defects in workmanship and materials. If you have any issues with the knife feel free to contact me and we will get them sorted out.
