Great work man. Well done
Thank you. Its a leaf spring steel, called Nablo 5028. It comes in flat bars anywhere from 3-20 mm thick, if i recall correctly. Same carbon content as american 1060, but with a bit more silicone which should make it a little tougher.
Looks awesome. Nice work.
I need to start on another knife. Have two bars of 1095 and a fair amount of O1 left, just need to settle on a design.
Thinking of making a tactical knife for my old man for his birthday.
Yup, thats the idea. (Plus, I just love a fucking big knife.)
What's your bottom dollar?
yeah I love big knives as well as hawks, were my interest in knife making/forging started with them(last of the mohicans is to blame for my hawk love)
your style reminds me of one of my favourite custom makers Giedymin
So you are forging? What's your forge and anvil set up? And what are you using to grind out the bevels?
Hope you don't mind if I hop in as well
My forge is made from a old gas bottle pretty much like this
Theres a bloke in Aus that makes them which I got mine but there's heaps of how toos out there( thinking of making another one for forge welding so not to fuck my refractory)
My anvil is 80 kgs that was offered in Aus for awhile but I can't find anywhere now , definitely happy I bought one for the price now
My grinder is a little buddy by wilmont grinders and I'm very happy with it, though you should have better verity of grinder to choose from in U.S. Than I had in Australia
If you need pics give us a holla
I think you meant to type sword.
I just stumbled upon this competition the other day, have u taken part at all?
The Conor McGreggor of the blade world. Military purpose.
Pretty sure you have to be pretty manly if a guy named Einar makes you a blade like that. What's your boy bench, 375?
When he goes on the murdering on the spree everyone in this thread can say we were here at the start.
I'm rocking a paint can forge. Trying to find a stump so I can buy a little stump spike anvil.
Right now I'm doing stock removal only. But want to try my hand at forging sometime soon. Freaking Forged in Fire has given me the knife making bug...
I took inspiration from a similar blade to those ones that I saw online a while back. Might have been one of his.
I have a Diamondback two burner propane forge, an old ass 100 lbs anvil thats crooked in every way, and a Pheer 2x72 belt grinder. I do a bit of forging, but most of my work is stock removal, so the grinder sees a lot more work than my forge. I mostly use the forge for heat treatment.
No, never done one of those. Looks fun though.
