Here’s the latest blade to come out of the shop this week. It’s also a piece that Jeremy and I had been wanting to make for almost an entire year. The blade is san mai forged from 1084 & 15N20. Fittings are all mild steel. Handle is lace wood, copper, leather and ebony. I forged a companion knife out of the same steels designed to be kept in a small pocket in the sheath. Blade is 15″ & overall is 22″. Construction is all traditional, using a peened nut to make a compression fitting for the assembly. Here’s some pictures of the process and finished piece. The sheath is veg tanned leather with forged s-chain. This particular piece is available at Pyrates Treasure at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. Price for a similar set is $900.
