Integral Knife forged from 52100
I recently got a beautiful integral fixed blade knife from Master Smith Ray Kirk. I like it so much that I had to try and make one for myself. I bought a couple 3/8″ round bars of the 52100 from Ray and here is what I came up with:
Thanks to my friend Dave from Circle H forge for the beautiful piece of stag.
Lots of folks have been helping me with all this. Ray spent an hour walking me through how to make a blade like this.
Also, Master Smith Lin Rhea is always there with an answer to anything I need help with.
I have come to find that the folks in the American Bladesmith Society are just some of the best people out there.
