My first forged knife

(1/2) > >>

I’m very pleased with the way this turned out for my first try. It was forged from a rotary jack hammer bit. I have access to a number of them as well as small tractor transmission shafts. I don’t know the exact steel it’s made from, but with some digging and luck, the tempering seemed to work out very well, as the blade is very hard and holds a good edge. I know some of you master smiths cringe at my crude way of knife building, but it’s for my own use and recreation. :biglaugh:

I’m sure you regulars can tell where my inspiration comes from.


Great job- bet you can’t make just one!!!

Way to go, Kenny! Keep banging on them!!
