Title: Forged 80CRV
Post by: Thadbow on March 06, 2019, 09:53:32 PM
It has been a while since Ive posted anything so I thought i would share one of my latest..
I made this one for a recent hog hunt that BJansen and I were on in Georgia.
The blade was forged out of 80CRV and the fittings were forged from 3/4" round carbon steel.
The handle is hemp wrapped over neoprene and then soaked in West System epoxy for a very durable finish.(https://i.imgur.com/edodvlE.jpg)

That looks like it would certainly do the job on a hog.  :biglaugh: Unique materials for the handle and a very nice sheath. 100% complete package! How did the hunt go? Y'all do any good?
