Im back at the Gathering this year for more fun I will be bringing some of my work with me so folks can handle and try my work. This year I will open sales up to the public, you will be able to go to my website and see both the Gathering price, (no shipping) and the worldwide shipped price on most items. I will make the stock live on the site on this coming Saturday when I am in Denmark.
Here I will be posting Photos and Videos of the event and my knives being used.
I made quite a lot of the materials for the work and have extra blanks, damascus and san mai left over so will be offering some semi custom pieces during and after the event, these are finished blades or blanks for finishing and custom handle options I will also offer one or two custom slots as the materials are ready to go and examples made so you can see them.
In the mean time here is a little WIP of what I have decided to bring.
All forged work this year in a simple double high carbon damascus, a pattern which lends itself to be forged and forged geometry.........and a san mai with medium carbon cladding and pure nickel, 01 core @ full hardness with the new HT
Here are some as forged, taper, hollow forged from spine to edge, edge is down to about 2mm as forged, spines are around 4mm over the heel.
One or two monos as well...
Everything currently in grind, I had better get on with it, only a few days left
I have made some 3 finger knives in damascus and san mai to have some nice small items
Im going semi rustic on these, minimal grinding as they are mostly forged to shape, they are only ground a little in the hollows and when finished will leave some forged texture on the spine.
The little 3 finger Utilities are pretty cool, Im going to call my design Swordfish because of the profile of the ladder handle and blade from the top, finished and etched you will see the wiggle of the pattern.
Thanks all, next pictures will be the finished work, then we will have lots of fun pictures of the Gathering and some video.
