Not sure if I've shared on this forum that I had shoulder surgery on May 2nd?
Anyway - I'm not much for forging right now. I might try forging next week.
But, I've had to put something together for the Atlanta Blade Show coming up.
Most of my knives are forged from either billets of San Mai, Damascus, or large round bar W1 and W2.
My current handicap gave me the opportunity to use some of the 'newer' 80CrV2 for stock removal.
This is the "Bear Track".
Handle is silk cord wrapped in Samurai style over sting ray skin.
