I did a WIP on this piecce on my Blog:


This piece was a commission.
Enjoy.

Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

Ben,
That is great cutlery! No complaints will be said by me. I love the handle carving, and overall sheath set up. It is interesting that you changed up the stamping weave on the two belt loops, and incorporated a fair amount of design variation while keeping it sort of subtle.
I am curious why the 8670? Did you heat treat it towards bainite and some flexibility?

Absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence!

Thanks,
I used 8670M for tow reasons, this is a "user" and will be carried so I wanted the high corrosion resistance, and tougher temper (this one is marquenched).
and the second reasons it that the 1075 steel I got for a composit billet was red-short (I found out after forge welding two billets and three blades, all of which are now rusting in the shop never to be used) so I just used the 8670M.

Its hard to believe that this beautiful piece is going to be a "user"! Is the owner planning on raiding Lindisfarne? Big Grin


This is a beautiful piece of work throughout but I'm especially impressed with the carving. I find it amazing that you were able to get the detailing you did carving a wood as coarsely grained as oak. The staining highlights the carving beautifully and the Oseberg style carving looks spot on although I'm not an expert.

Ben, your carved grips are always a gift. Thanks for sharing.

btw, on my pc the link leads to blacked out pics. Rest of your site shows fine. Mentioned for future.
