i wipped up a couple more...
PATTERN WELDED, see the last post to check out its details...
Started a long knife, but broke it before I completed, I hardened and sharpened what was left of it. It has the longest handle and the shortest blade... FUGLY? yes. very.
this knife was made from a very tough steel, used in suspension coils, very sturdy, cools down very quickly, this one is the chunkiest and lumpiest and has the most flaws because the steel was just very hard to work with. still very sharp, am going to put a brass guard on it like a bowie knife, and a nice handle.
My pride and joy, made from the steel in a leaf-spring (look it up in wikipedia) this steel is also used in suspension, but it is much easier to work with. this knife is the most comfortable, best weight and by far the sharpest, it could pass as a scalpel! its insanely good. i cant stress how sharp it is...
My next post will be the complete process of making a knife and hardening...
(INCLUDING PHOTOS! GET PUMPED!)
sorry about the graffiti on the pictures, I was bored and MS paint was beckoning.
(please note, I only used paint because photoshop takes longer to load. I in no way condone use of MSpaint on the art forums, and in fact i spit on anyone who uses it regularly.)
P.S. If you want better pictures, add me on MSN! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
