Hand forging a knife

A couple of weeks ago I went on a course to learn how to forge knives and other tools. It was a brilliant day out and the chap who had the patience to teach me was Dave Budd (www.davebuddknives.homestead.com). He did a good job. Here is the (almost finished) article.

I still have the handle to finish - it is made of oak and it needs to have a bit more sanding, then Danish oil, then more sanding, more oil etc etc.


The blade also needs to be sharpened but that won't happen until I have made the sheath. That will be another day with Dave and another learning curve!


Here is a closeup of the handle and blade.




























I did get a bit fancy and added some file work on the spine to make it look a bit flash!
