First Forged Blade

Dec 16, 2004
Well it is not a crowning achievement but it is my first forged blade.
It has a multitude of flaws but I am pleased with the effort thus far
I just gotta figure out what to do next. (Oh the denim micarta is a first too)
Congradulations!!! It looks far better then my first forged blade(?). I suppose it's too late to warn you about how addicting it is. Show us the finished knife.
Considering my first attempt is going into the scrap pile, I would say it looks mighty fine. Congratulations.

Happy forging,

considering that the vast majority of the first SEVENTY FIVE or so of mine went to the scrappile, VERY My fifth one was a keeper, but only for home use:D
