Finally Back at the Forge!

Well after taking a long break I am getting some work done:)

I had the preforms sitting around for over a year now...and have been meaning to get them forged....and finally did. I forged one each day for the past 3-days.

My initial thought with these was to do three different finishes to the blades to have as an example of the different levels of possibilities for my knives. Now I am not 100% sure what I will do, it's just the artist in me. At this time, I think I will do two with Honyaki clay heat treatments, and one just a straight edge quench with possibly a simple satin finish.

Stay tuned & I will add in images and comments to this post as I go along on these.
