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

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... :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...
