    Yesterday's black smithing magic!

    Hi,
    I spent a day on the anvil with my girlfriend's farrier yesterday.
    Here's the result:

    In the next few weeks I will do the heat treatment, handle installation and finishing. I will have to make a leather pouch for it as well.

    Well done that looks very cool.

    Those few flaws near the tip are most probably from working it to cold a few times.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    We really struggled at first to do our welds. On this one the weld did not quite close properly at the end so I had to chop 10 mm off. Hence why the Damascus lines are not following the profile to the tip.
    I used 1095 and 15N20.

    I used to forge knives about 15 years ago as a hobby back in Europe. I am happy to get back into it.

    I am very jealous.

    Please let me know if you start selling Damaskus bars!
