Did some ‘branding’ this weekend. Also made a wallet. And yes, there is a lot to improve upon, but at least there’s money in it...lol. I will say I have been so blessed in this knife making adventure! God is so good! #knifemaking#handmade#leatherwork#knifewerks #...knives #godisgood
Here's a photo of the collab I did with @donnguyenknives - in which I forged the 416 clad W2 san mai billet before he proceeded to administer his full fledged Don wizardry upon it.
If you aren't familiar with @donnguyenknives - now would be a good time to get acquainted. He is one of those people whose talent is inherently off the charts and he set himself apart early by developing a style and expanding on it with every piece he produces. Each knife he makes sets the bar a little higher than before, thus it's no wonder he is where he is now. thanks for the ridiculous photo @sharpbycoop and thanks for making my steel look the best it ever has @donnguyenknives
Happy Easter! Here is a small dagger I made this morning out of a rasp. The sheath is made from and old belt and the handle is piracies wrapped. It took a few tries but eventually I got the steel hardened. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to better harden steel from files or rasps? #blacksmith#forge#manitobamakers#knifemaking
