Hey all, I've been lurking around here and picking up plenty of info from all of you. I figured it's high time I start showing off some of my work.

Here is a recently finished tall heeled petty in forged 1084 steel., the handle is richlite and (unknown) reclaimed hardwood.

Thank you @chefwp. @tostadas, thanks for noticing. I've been trying to forge in as much taper as I can, this particular one came out real well.

Here's another I finished up last night. 7" edge (roughly 180mm), 1084 and 15n20 damascus. I put a very light etch on this one to let the pattern age along with the patina. African blackwood, turquoise composite and quilted maple handle with a diamond cross section. Hope y'all like it.

I really like the look of your handles. Not too shiny, elegant with interesting inserts, nice!

Like the overall material combinations👌
Are you happy with the performance of the 1084?

That anvil has been through a lot. A hand me down from my father in law that has some really bad edges but moves material really quickly. Best I've been able to figure (based on info from people much smarter than me) it's an old Henry Wright. Old Henry was a supposed employee (or cousin, depending on the rendition you hear) of Peter Wrights. He stole Peter's plans and started making anvils of his own. Not many Henry Wrights around anymore.

And thank you for the compliment!
