Thank you to everyone for coming to see us at our private view @67yorkstreet with @par_avion_co. Was a great evening and looking forward to the next pop up!
Not our own but a good saying 👍🏻
Hand forged low layer twist damascus. 1095 and 15n20. This is just a 120 grit test etch on a pocket bowie I forged today. I didnt start with any plan and just kind of let the steel do the talking. I am quite fond of this compact clip point! I might have to make more!
This primitive styled Ulu* has a curved, flat ground, 1/16" blade of 1095 high carbon steel, differentially hardened to HRC 62 at the edge, soft at the spine, with a visible hamon (temper line). The handle is Elk antler with Damascus end caps. The Ulu blade is 5-1/4" wide, the knife is 4-3/4" tall.
The name comes from a dream I had, where I dreamt this knife. What it would look like, how I would make it, etc. The next day I got up and worked 11 hours on it, start to finish, bringing it to life. And now it can be yours. I probably won't make another one just like it, it's pretty much one of a kind. *The Ulu is an Eskimo (Inuit) design, used for butchering game, food preparation, skinning, and eating, dating anywhere from 5000 years old to much older. This highly functional design evolved over millennia, and has been found in archaeological sites, made from bone, stone, and ivory, pre-dating the Iron Age. It's quite nimble in the hand, and on a cutting board, does a fair imitation of a human-powered Cuisinart.
