Happy Friday Everyone,

Another forged blade with a more significant taper, I'm very happy with this one overall. It's been a while since I've done any real blade forging, lately forging has usually meant drawing stock under the press, and I'm quite enjoying swinging a hammer again and shaping the old fashioned way. Just plain stock removal can get a little tedious.
  • Blade: 246mmx50mm O1 tool steel(64hrc) 320 grit hand finish
  • Neck: 23mmx18mm
  • Handle: 128mm, tapering from 24.3mmx22.7 to 22.4mmx21.8mm, scorched oak, oiled and waxed
  • POB: 62mm from handle
  • Spine: 4.98mm at the neck, 2.86mm at 13.5cm, 1.13mm 1cm from the tip
  • Grind: flat to convex, right hand bias
  • Weight: 219 grams
  • Relieved choil and spine
  • Edge: zero
Asking $215 U.S shipped+ insured w/signature reqd.

It's hot glued in place. I've never done a straight friction fit, and I've started saving the epoxy for higher grades of wood, and when it's specifically requested.
