I have recently started to work on some daggers. Both are from 14260 spring steel.
The longer one is 60 cm long, 2,5 cm wide and 6 mm thick, thinning to 3mm towards the point. It has a diamond cross-section. with central fuller, pierced with round and oblong holes. The blade has a reinforced point, but I might not keep it - I may grind it off. The blade represents a type of extremely long left-handed daggers from 16th/17th century. Itīs nearly finished, just needs some cleaning of lines before it goes off to hardening & tempering.
The second one still needs some filing and grinding. It will be a "swordbreaker" type, 16th/17th C., 45 cm long and 4 cm wide, 6mm thick, thinning to 3 mm after the "catcher" section.
Some more dagger blades are in the making, I will post pictures.

I have always been fascinated with the reinforced points.

Looking forward to seeing the finished knives.
