Filework on the spine of the blade
First original file work i have seen ever, really well done man.
Woh nice! Which tools do you use to get that done?
Inspiring work! I haven't tried carving metal yet. (Wood's more usual for me.) It's beautifully precise, and the graduated size of the "links" is perfect. Did you do it by eye or have a formula and measure/mark?
I measured the length of each link so they wouldn't be all ove the palce, and drew out the design using layout fluid before i started cutting.
did you post a how to? that work is just great.
I mean really fanstastic

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.
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
beautiful knife, unique, do you forge your own blades and what tpe of steel is it.
nice hand work man ! .... how you managed to make the holes ?
Chisels & gravers mostly. A little smoothing with a diamond burr in a foredom.
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...
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...
I really like this
Wow. Just... Wow.
You did great, file work aint easy.
How did you carve out the center parts of the weaves?
Beautiful. Like the taper, Must have taken a while to carve out in between the weaves!
uhhh that is too cool!
Dude... that is sick... Love it!
I cant imagine how annoying this must of been to make O_o
Do you sell these
I have always been a fan of the cold steel.
I like this work a lot!
I'll check out your gallery later!
That is some sick detail work. O_O How did you file it so precisely?
I want one :3
