Seax-OC#1-(PART 1)

Seax-OC#1-(PART 1) Don't need all that material, so I hot-cut the handle off with a hatchet and a hammer (use like a chisel).They're call "clinkers" and will cause cold-spots in your forge, restrict air-flow, and act as heat-sinks.

Seax-OC#1-(Part 2)

Seax-OC#1-(Part 2) And through the power of magic, it is now fully shaped and the hilt/pommel have been blackened!Here I was flame-blackening the handle and heating the end of the tang to make peening it down easier.

Kitchen Knife OC#3-(PART2)

Kitchen Knife OC#3-(PART2) After FINALLY getting the steel successfully hardened and RELATIVELY straight, I went out to grind it as close to perfect as I could get.There is still a bit of a lazy curve to one side, but that shouldn't affect the cutting ability.
