Not sure what to call this one so I'll go with that. This is another blade forged from an old leaf spring with more wrought iron and sometype of deer antler crown. The blade is 5 1/4", overall its around 10".

Love it, Ray. Very well done.

You could call it a mini-golok. I made a golok a while back (diff. but same "tip"):

Nice one Ray....I like those guards your doing. Is it one piece?
Would love to see you do a dagger w/ a double guard like that. You ever do daggers?

That's another sweet one Ray, I like the guard too. Whenever you do make a dagger, let's figure out a trade! I need another Richard on my desk.

I haven't done a dagger in a few years but who knows. The guard on the last couple pieces have been one piece. The only forging I do on them is to flatten out the wagon wheel and to put the radius on at the very end. The rest is done by stock removal.
