    This is a little hunter/ranger knife, actually dont know what to call it! But its a San Mai blade with a W1 core and wrought iron sides, Bronze bolster and pin with a Ziricote handle. This one was forged outta scrap just to test out the power hammer...

    Then I made a Roman Pugio blade, might even get paided for this one!:D W1 blade with a rib down the middle, some people have told me the pics make it look like a fuller.

    thanks for looking!

    One last one, figured I should share this one. Forged the blade at the Regina hammer in, in 2013 I think... still not done as it sat around for a while then got Heat treated and sat around more for polish and then more for the fittings. One day I'll finish it. In the shots it's big brother a 32 inch blade katana about 46" over all

    I'd like to see some closer photos of the wakizashi-ish blade, looks like a pretty sweet hamon going on there.

    really good to see you back and see these projects. Always a big fan of your work, and the size of blades you are making. I remember you forging that blade at the hammer in in Regina. It looks stunning as is and can only imagine once its finished. Very nice looking hamon on that one. That Roman sword is off the hook also, i cant imagine doing something that large yet. You have some skills my friend

    Welcome back, Mike. I can see you haven't lost your touch in the interim. Some really nice stuff there. I really like the little hunter -- looks very user friendly.
