Havenít posted in here in a while; Iím still doing some stock removal but forging a lot more these days. Here are two I forged out of ľ 1095. The first one has stabilized spalted curly maple handles and the second one (Sold)has stabilized African Iroko wood, Damascus steel guard. I havenít made the sheaths yet, waiting for my thumb to heal after losing a tug of war battle with a metal bandsaw.
I just got in a bunch of Sambar Stag canít wait to fire up the forge. The stitched come out this Wednesday hopefully I can get back to work.

What is length on blades?

Use scissors when removing stitches, band saw blade might grab a stitch and jerk your entire hand.

Thanks for not showing your wound...

Was just getting ready to say I found it on your website, the spalted maple was the last one...
