Forged Damascus Fighter

Posted: June 6, 2011 in New Knives

I am currently forging a Damascus Fighter using Damascus created from 1095 and O1. The Damascus is a twist pattern that was created by Gary Smith and me at his shop in Louisiana utilizing a 25# Little Giant.

We used similar steels to give it a subdued look that should match the fighter style well. When finished the knife will have a guard and pommel made from wrought iron created in the middle 1800’s and a handle made from stacked ebony with file worked copper spacers.
