New Little Sunday Afternoon Project

My weekend woodworking project.  Damascus steel with amboyna burl scales on the handles, brass rivet pins.  12 1/2 inches long.  Wicked sharp.  I didn't make the steel; the blade was my Christmas gift from the lovely Mrs. Graybeard.  All I did was the woodworking.  Not exactly New Yankee Workshop stuff...

  2. Nice pattern welding on that blade. Once we stop RVing and settle down, I plan to try my hand at it. I've got a coal forge, but will probably build a small gas forge for the welding.

  4. Thanks, all. h - stay tuned. On closer examination, I don't like that finish (polyurethane) - too many brush marks.
