All three knife blanks are Damascus steel I purchased on the internet, pre-made. I only did the scales. Battling Blades.com. they did a great job, and they are handmade.

First photo is scales made from Walnut and white oak. Second is Wenge and white oak. Last picture is hickory and osage orange.

Al of them are epoxied on, and I also used brass pins. Finished with 3 coats of wipe on polyurethane.

They were given as gifts.

Really very, very nice!

This is what those Forged in Fire guys should be capable of doing before they ever step foot on the show. It always amazes me that they get up there knowing so much about making blades, but are clueless about the most important thing, HOW GET A DECENT HANDLE ON THE BLADE. ( sorry about the tiny rant )

Great Job! I think you should take up blacksmithing too….

jerry i think the big problem on the show is time,these guys are used to taking days or weeks to make a knife,i think the pressure makes them panic and screw up.im amazed some do as well as they do.
