Newbie Knife Maker


Recommended Posts

I'm the maker, it was a custom ordered piece and is already with it's new owner. I take custom orders but be warned I work at a slow speed on customs lol. That folder took me about two months mostly due to buffer throwing it and destroying the first handle I put on it.

Did you forge out the damascus for the blade? And with that are the blades forged or ground out? Very nice work

The blade was damasteel a Swedish damascus. i dont forge yet, i ordered the damascus bar and used stock removal from there. i grind and profile on a Bader B3, and all handle and bolster work is done by hand with files. I also have to etch the steel in acid to reveal the pattern, then hand sand and buff, re-etch and repeat.
