This is a hand forged Kamisori style straight razor. The blade was forged from a bar of W1 round bar. It features a double hollow ground blade, and satin belt finish. The edge was ground very thin before final sharpening. It had been sharpened at 17 dps.
This is my first hollow ground blade, done freehand. I think it turned out quite well.
Blade length: 2″
Target hardness: 62-63 hrc
$75 USD shipped to Canada and USA.
This is the first of a run of full tang outdoorsman hatchets that I will be offering. Made for chopping wood, or delimbing branches. This was the test hatchet, and it turned out well.
The steel is 1/4″ 1075 steel, triple normalized, and heat treated to a 57- 58 HRC goal. The tang has been spring tempered with a torch.
The overall length is 14″, with a 3″ cutting edge. This one is sporting black linen micarta handle with stainless pins. Comes with a leather edge cover.
Here is an EDC/Hunter pattern that I really like making. This is the third knife I have made in this style. The others had hidden lanyards, but I figured I would change it up this time. Variety is the spice of life.
The steel is clay quenched W2 steel. The handle is figured claro walnut, with subtle red G10 liners.
