No. I haven't done another one yet, so no chance to do a how-to.  I have gotten side tracked by commissions and jewelry this year.  I hope to do one this summer, but my calendar for the year is already over half full.  I really need to dump my day job - too bad it pays the bills.

I will do this again, and I'll take some pictures.  I can't promise a video, though.

Can this knife be for sale? Or can you curve another one just the same as this one, and curve a name on it as well?

This knife was sold a while back.  I certainly can carve another like this.  Send me a message and we can discuss it

I forge my own blades.  I generally use plain carbon steel.  This knife is forged from  1075

This is really great! Well-executed with a great eye for proportionate diminishing of the pattern. Excellent work!

I suppose I should go through all the usual bladesmith questions... :D
What sort of steel did you use for this?
What wood for the handle?
Did you quench it at the zenith (nadir?) of the most recent new moon? ;D

...quenched in the urine of a goat that only ate ferns for a month. :-P

It's 1075 carbon steel, brass guard and tiger stripe maple handle with a bit of leather dye on it.  And after eating ferns for a month the goat pissed out McMaster-Carr FastQuench.  Imagine that...
