A Hunter forged from Japanese 1085
« on: June 08, 2024, 10:40:21 PM »
I hope ya'll let me share a recent completion.
I forged this from a round bar of what is being referred to as "Japanese 1085" by the folks at Pop's. These are industry drops being picked up and sold commercially here and there.
When the last deer disappears into the morning mist,
When the last elk vanishes from the hills,
When the last buffalo falls on the plains,
I will hunt mice for I am a hunter and I must have my freedom.

That looks sweet.
I have a knife going right now and I'm thinking of using African Black Wood and after seeing this one,  I made up my mind.
Thanks for sharing.   :thumbsup:
