These are knives I've produced by the Hand Forging Method. It's a familiar method if you're seen a black smith work. It's just heating up the steel till it's hot enough to give to a hammer blow and pounding on it till it looks like a knife.
Ok, there's a little more to it than that. But it's been going on since man discovered iron. Modern blade smiths do have the advantage of modern steels and generations of knowledge to draw on. I'm still hand forging behind the shop, so watching me work is a little more rustic than industrial, but I manage to produce custom knives to the client's exacting specifications.
This One is Called the Black Knight. The etching on the blade Virtus et Vires, which can mean several things in Latin, in this case stand for Chivalry and Strength. The client wanted my take on a large Karambit style with lots of attitude. How'd I do?
