Hello

I've finished my work on the pattern welded knife. Unfortunately, there are some impurities on the blade where steel didn't weld well. Because of that I decided to sell it for the most fair price - the price which a customer picks himself Happy (quite a popular game lately on myArmoury Wink )

The rules are simple. If anybody wants to have that piece all he needs to do is to contact me via PM or email ( dargoria@interia.pl ) and give his own proposition of the price he wants to pay. The person who gives the highest price wins.
The end of the game is 22nd of November at 24:00 polish time.
The knife will be sold to the winner for the price he had chosen(+ shipping costs). He can remein anonymus, but the price will be published.

The game is not restricted to this forum members only.


Some stats:
tolal lenght circa 16,5 cm
blade lenght circa 8,3 cm
blade wight at the guard 1,6 cm

Jatoba wood handle, pins and guard are brass.

Does the welding mistake makes it weak in that spot or is it just cosmetic thing?

It isn't a large blade and the thickness at the guard is 3mm so if you won't use it as an axe or crowbar it should be ok. Wink
But of course impurieties weaken the blade. That is why I let the customer decide about the price- I want to be absolutely fair.

The small slag inclusions look pretty minor to me. I think it enhances it's appearance as definitely not being a powder metallurgy simulation of the real thing. Nice work.
Absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence!

The blade was sold for 44$ (120PLN) . The customer wanted to be anonymous.. I can only say that he lives in Poland.
