Here are 3 hunters I forged out over the past 2 weekends. One used to be a Gedore Shifting spanner (I like its simplicity and functionality), and the other 2 are forged from 1095 high carbon steel. Handles are stabilized rooikraans (can you believe braai wood can be so interesting?), and the other is fallow deer antler treated with potassium permanganate. 


Very nice. The better the braai wood, the better the handle.

@Rossdog , your knives are really beautiful.

Let me know on the GeDore blade, no sheath needed.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Ek en my broer se laaitie het die naweek ‘n skaapskêr challenge gedoen. Elkeen moes ‘n mes uit ‘n skaapskêr maak.

Hierdie een het ek so tanto styl lem gegee en gesand blast na ek ‘n edge hardening gedoen het.

This is the 1st knife I’d done through forging. I took a piece of spring from a Venter trailer. The idea was to make a friction folder in the the style of the 17-hundreds peasant knives. I tried to stick to the vintage look and spirit
