Makin Knives
« on: March 19, 2015, 11:41:05 AM »
Here is a pig knife I made some years ago, It saw use in the New England area as a back up weapon around the time a particular mad man was on the loose.
Also used on a few dogging hunts.



Scale is stressed NSW Blackwood and blade is hardened to 58 Rockwell.
The "Pistola" handle shape was a bit of a signature of mine at the time.

Nice?  Forged, ground or a combo of the 2?

I'll have to get my arse back into the forge sometime and get some more knives made.

All ground out from an annealed flat bar on an Abbot & Ashby and side linnishing belt attachment.
 My shed at the time was a shipping container.
I didn't dabble with a forge to much but did have a go at it.
I went straight for the top for Damascus, worked ok but nothing to write home about.
I've just got into contact with a bloke whom I gave a hunting knife  to send me a pic of it.
