Blacksmith’s Knives from Logging Steel and Rawhide

This type of integral design is based on a traditional companion knife made by blacksmiths in the previous century. The clay tempered blades were hand forged from a length of high carbon spring steel rod. The natural textures of the fire and hammer create the finished surfaces of the blade and handle.

Material: Reclaimed logging spring steel, rawhide

The blades are from 3-4″ long and the overall length is between 6-7″.
