• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/

If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

Hello.

I'm kind of semiretired (pending) blade smith. Anyway I thought it might be fun to show off some of the stuff that I have made in past to a bit broader audience. Hopefully some of you will like them. They are more or less scandinavian style knives, puukkos and such.

None of these are for sale or anything like that. At the moment not really working even that much but if I decide to get more active again I'll for sure pay a membership.

I'll just put few up first and then if you want I can put more up in future.

Wow these are beautiful. The wood and blades go together very well. The sheaths, while not my style are works of art in their own right.

I especially like some of the leather washer handles … and the bear:)

I assume you shaped the handles from scratch - did you purchase the blades as is and mount them ...or?

Nice hear that you like them.

As you assume, everything has been made from scratch, from forging the blade to shaping the handle and leatherwork. Well, I did not do the tanning of the leather but othervise. :)

Here is few more. These are, well, were interesting requests in past that I had fun to figure out. Functionality does get slightly reduced but anyway.
