P-160: Metalworking Forge Update 6

by on Jul.05, 2015, under Inventions, Miscellany

Included are some pictures of my third forging session with my Damascus steel knife.

It is finally starting to look like a knife. The tip of the blade is mostly done, and I have started narrowing the length of the blade in preparation for filing.

I have to narrow the blade further, add the indentations for the hilt, and round the rear of the hilt. Then I will need to temper, polish, and etch it, before creating the hilt itself.
