Client photo. Only blade in the house that could cut parmesan. No batoning needed.

This was my take on a bowie knife, almost 15 inches long overall, 1/4 in thick 8670 steel, 58 hrc.

A VERY old knife. Given to a friend of mine when he was about 8 years old, just after world war 2, by an uncle that was in the navy. It came from the Philippines. Im going to just oil it up, and do very minor surface cleaning to the blade.

So cool to see these extremely old blades.

The barong i made in its new home. Buying a blade from me is like going through the adoption process for a kid or a puppy. I require photos to show me the blade is doing well in its new home.

Tried some cold bluing for the first time. Not sure what i think.

Then left is before, the right is the same blade after the bluing process.
This spike came from the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad.

Not ALL blades are meant to look perfect. This is a practice sword that belongs to my Sifu/kali/martial arts instructor. It needed a new handle, but nothing else. Each ding in the blade is a story. "This is a Filipino sword. It was given to me by one of my teachers. Guro Manuel Estrella "Skip". It was given to him by the late professor Remy Persas, an Arnis Grandmaster. This blade was used many times by Remy Persas in life demos in California, when master Remy first came to California from the Philippines. Manuel Estrella a police officer in California (I don't remember what town right now) helped him get a visa and got him set with some type of cultural exchange program, which allowed to come to the US and start teaching civilians as well as Law enforcement. So that sword has been handed down from generation to the next to the next. "

That's this swords story. Im just glad i was trusted to do the sword justice by giving it a proper handle. A few years back someone else replaced the handle and it was awful. I purposely didn't take photos of it, the old handle needed to be forgotten.

Macassar ebony and a brass pin from my grandfather's workshop.

Two more railroad bolt bottle openers finished up tonight. You can drink and do bicep curls with the bottle opener at the same time. #multitasking

Thanks @traviswuertz for the great blade breakdown, viewers dont get to see all of it. And thanks to @goldberg95 and @ronintactics for making me sound like a beast w your commentary.

Tammy was always sniffing around the shop. She would always try to walk off with an antler from my bag of antlers i use for blade handles.

Almost finished
Macassar ebony scales on this barong.

Its hard to get the character of this wood in a photo. It is one of the traditional woods used on Filipino martial arts swords.

This baron and one other sword will be getting this macassar ebony wood for their handles.

Terrible, i can't rotate a video i recorded with my @samsungmobile s9 plus. It did a terrible job in slo motion, so i cut the part of the video i needed out of the "slo mo" video. Can't rotate it.

Still! Sharp, cut through some big ass manilla rope.

My take on a wakizashi. A little over a quarter of an inch thick 8670.

The wakizashi is 22.5 inches overall.

@bexar_co_burls sent me these quilted maple scales.

Very light, and extremely sharp. Need to find some stuff to slice.

@bexar_co_burls sent me these quilted maple scales. So nice. Such a cool cut of wood.

Grinding bevels on long blades, curved blades, its not easy. Let alone doing it free hand, but that's how i do it best. Luckily i got to do both today. A barong for a fellow kali martial artist. And my take on a wakizashi for my acupuncturist.
Im really happy after grinding these, i should just quit while im ahead.

My favorite steel again. A little over a quarter of an inch thick 8670.

The wakizashi is 22.5 inches overall.

The barong is 16 inches overall.

No filters.

The key to getting some darker low spots was 50/50 vinegar/acid. Such a huge difference in person. The video does this steel no justice.
Etching this @damasteelab kitchen knife.

Grosserosen pattern.

Time for scales from @robswildwood
