Hello friends,

after learning so much from this side and its members I wanted to contribute a little to the site too.
Last week I started forging an new Messer blade.
I found inspiration on hermann historica with Lot Nr.3611 from the 61st auction (a german Messer from the early 16th century).
While I loved seeing other projects I thought I showed you how I make my swords.
The first attached picture is the raw forged blade and the second picture is the blade after first rough grinding.
I will do more grinding tomorrow and if there is interest, I will post more pictures of my progress.

Nice project! I make one too! Forged from a leafspring, 2x normalized.

I'll finish mine probably this evening.

Good luck, go on!

Hi Scott,
thanks for asking, but my time schedule has has been changed terribly so I did not have enough time to do what I wanted (making a forestry bachelor is extremely time consuming...).
All I did until now is finishing the machine-grinding and some raw filing. The Blade now weights just over 1000grams and starts to feel alive. I will be home next weekend and upload some pictures of the current state.

Hi,

here is a picture of the current state of the blade. I had to bend the blade near the grip to straighten it, so that is why it is coloured in this parts.
