Gwion's Hand Forged Knives

But at least they will die in style :nerd_face::rofl::innocent::+1:

Wow. That are different. Definitely some creative thinking there. Love the cable knife. Very impressed. Come on G.

One the only good reality tv shows I’ve seen.

Gun-dmc with out hijacking, i used to love Historys Top Shot.

Yeah that was another good one, I wish they’d brindle that one back!

Knife making season will begin mid June this year, as i still have a bit of work ahead of me on the boat…

Get in touch if you are after something. I am limiting myself to five knives this year.

Something randomly interesting. My aunty just posted me some 170yo elephant leather. :flushed:
Will be interesting to see if it’s usable for a sheath for the weed wacker! :nerd_face::face_with_monocle::+1:


Just something she had kicking around in the cupboard?

They had some antique chairs reupholstered because some of the leather couldn’t be repaired.

@Gwion hey mate do you have a forge or furnace that you could use to melt brass. I bought a crucible and tried to melt some with the oxy / Acetylene torch which works but for only very small amounts there is not enough widespread heat to melt a pot of the stuff, or I would have to wait a long time and perhaps use a full bottle. :grinning:

Yes mate, I do. It’s been on the to do list but time is extremely hard to come by in the last year or so!

Could you post a few details please? pictures price performance. I am interested in doing some brass casting. those 22LR cases can add up to some sort of project. :grinning:

I’ll get onto it. All put together hillbilly style.

That’s the best style

Ok. For a start, here is a link to the most popular place to get forge gear from for knife making hobbiests. When i made my first forge and the one below, they constantly seemed to be sold out of everything and had more consumables than forge hardware but have stepped up the game in the last couple of years as every man and his dog now wants to be a knife maker or blacksmith so there’s obviously better business in it for them.

You will also find 18 quintrillion instructables on YouTube on various ways to construct a forge or smelter, including how to assemble the kits available in the link.
