latest project.
« on: September 05, 2018, 04:58:52 pm »
I was asked by a friend at work if I would forge a hunting knife for his young son and his first deer season.
I jumped at the chance.
8.5 inches overall 4.250 blade .
forged from a Nicholson file.
hand sanded to 600 wet and etched to expose hamon.
some of the best fiddleback maple i've ever laid my hands on.
thanks for looking
Kevin.

That's a sweet one, Kevin for a lucky young hunter.   :OK   8)
I added a nice curly maple to the little saw blade knife you sent me. I'll post it soon.

Very nice!  That one should stay in the family a long time!  Hope he gets a chance to use it this season, and many more!
