Massive picture post: whole lotta forged blades

It's been a very busy last several months, and while I have produced a good number of blades, I haven't been as active online to post them.  So here's most of them from recent months.  :D

Everything is 80CrV2 steel, with various combinations of paracord and hemp wrapped handles, and Boltaron sheaths except for the two retina-searing colors, which are Kydex.

In vague order from November to February:

This chopper was forged very close to the final shape.  Minimal stock removal on the bevels.




 
A rare foldover sheath:


My eyes!


Not the same tan tanto as above.


 
 
 
A very rare kiridashi.


O tanto with a 13 1/2" blade and wakizashi with a 15 3/4" blade.  The waki was a commission from a Green Beret.


This 9" recurve was finished just in time to be a Christmas gift.

 
 

 
Did a number of ginuntings, have more in the future.






My eyes!



 
 
Hey, look, a midtech Little Rok with CNC machined bevels! Slowly making progress.  :D
