This paring knife was so much fun to make, one of my favourite kitchen knives that I've made for sure. 5160 blade, brass and blue dyed maple burl and brass layered bolster with a black walnut handle. This went with the 10" maple burl handles knife because that commission took far too long so I figured I'd include something extra : )

Not the same dagger in the drawing, but i couldn't find the actual one. Handle got fitted, but i lost alot of the fullers on the spacer because it wasnt the right size 🤦‍♂️ Should be getting it done in the next few days possibly. . . . . . . . . @alecsteele @alecsteeleco #alecsteele #alecsteelco #alecsteelelive #blacksmith #bladesmith #axe #forged #forging #knives #knifesmithing #knifemaking #handmade #steel #alecsteele #alecsteeleco #axes #anvil #anvils #knife #hardwork #woodworking #wood #tools #alecsteeleco150 #4weeksofforging #WhereAlecLeftIt #buysell #buyselltrade #buy #sell

Hope ya love the asmr qualities that cutting paper has : ) - - - - #blacksmith #handmade #blacksmithing #bladesmith #forged #forge #handforged #knifemaker #knife #forging #knifemaking #forgedinfire #knives #steel #knifeporn #anvil #art #blade #customknife #blacksmiths #damascussteel #bushcraft #bladesmithing #hunting #metalwork #knifelife #iron #satisfying #alecsteeleco #alecsteele

So here you see 2 days worth of work. A square-circle rounding hammer, a japanese style hammer, a pair of flat bit tongs, an axe, 2 arrow tips and 2 leaf hooks. I'm very happy how it all turned out. @alecsteeleco alecsteeleco150 #blacksmith #blacksmithing #handmade #alecsteeleco #alecsteele #artist #forge #forged #forging #passion #design #knifemaking #knifemaker #metalwork #bladesmith #bladesmithing #forgedinfire

This chefs knife is finished! It definitely took a while to make cause of college and other things, but it still came out looking pretty good : ) This one is *sold*, and will see it’s final sharpening happen very soon. Also, I used a different background cause the handle is a little more light colored, and would sort of get overshadowed by my regular charred wood background. Specs are below: —————————————————— Blade Steel: W2 Tool Steel Blade Length: 8 1/2 inches Handle Material: Curly Maple (stabilized in house ) Handle Length: 5 inches Hamon: Fire Pins: Brass - - - - #blacksmith #handmade #blacksmithing #bladesmith #forged #forge #handforged #knifemaker #knife #forging #knifemaking #forgedinfire #knives #steel #knifeporn #anvil #art #blade #customknife #blacksmiths #damascussteel #bushcraft #bladesmithing #hunting #metalwork #knifelife #iron #satisfying #alecsteeleco #alecsteele

3am & I've decided it's time for a beacon sandwich, a glass of milk & time for bed. It's been a productive 12hrs, the 1095 blackened micarta scout is finished, the Damascus scout is almost finished, I've restored a 50+ year old hammer & made a start on a pair of folders. The folders are an experiment as they are Sandvik stainless steel & I've never worked with stainless before, I've a commission which requires 3 Damascus stainless steel folders, so these 2 Sandvik folders are testers to see if my 6 months of reading, studying & many YouTube videos yield the desired result. Tomorrow... or rather later today, I will get stuck into making sheaths & working on with the 2 experiment folders. . . . . #handmade #knife #knifeporn #slipjoint #foldingknife #madeinnorthernireland #damascus #blackthornblades #pocketknife #edc #everydaycarry #slipjoint #uklegaledc #pocketknife #alecsteele

Modern kitchen cleaver destined for @marcus_cooks_ . didn’t want to make this an over the top cleaver because it was meant for for a kitchen than a butchers, and as such should work well as a slicing/ chopping hybrid. The damascus matches the last knife i made for him and the coffin(ish ) handle is made from green damascus acrylic with a glow in the dark spacer. #knifemaking #knifeporn #knifelife #knifeskills #bladesmith #bladesmithing #bladeshowuk #alecsteeleco150 #alecsteele @alecsteeleco

Forge welded bundle I put together this weekend while at Czech Fest in Lagrange. This is the first forge welded bundle I’ve done like this. Four pieces forged from 1/2” square and then held together with a collar and then forge welded. I welded this without flux and it went just fine. A cool piece to practice with. #blacksmith #blacksmithing #blacksmithingtools #blacksmithtools #blacksmithshop #blacksmithart #anvil #tools #metalart #weldingart #welding #steelart #modernart #handforged #forged #handmade #vise #forgedleaf #blacksmithhammer #czech #czechfest #lagrange #woodworking #leatherwork #bladesmith #bladesmithing #forgedinfire #knifemaking #alecsteele #farrier

Quenching Big Kev! Yeah the video is cut, my oil isn’t some special concoction developed by a Russian engineer named Boris. I think it went well, no cracks, no serious warps, and skates a file, so time will tell : ) - - - - #blacksmith #handmade #blacksmithing #bladesmith #forged #forge #handforged #knifemaker #knife #forging #knifemaking #forgedinfire #knives #steel #knifeporn #anvil #art #blade #customknife #blacksmiths #damascussteel #bushcraft #bladesmithing #hunting #metalwork #knifelife #iron #satisfying #alecsteeleco #alecsteele

Straight out of the etch (at 4am this morning ) & the blades looking awesome, the bolsters look a little weird but you can clearly see the layers along the edges. I'll give everything a light sanding with 2500 grit, after that I think the blade & bolsters deserve a nice long coffee break... 24hrs to be exact. 😏 I've also polished all the brass liner's & sanded the scales up to 1500 grit, so once I'm finished with the coffee etch it shouldn't take long to complete the knife then it's on to making a sheath. I'm trying to decide between leather or kydex, personally I think leather would be better for a knife of this... "caliber" What's you're opinion? Tonight I'm spending time with the wife & wee man, I've a week booked off work starting tomorrow, and tomorrow afternoon the wife & the wee man are away off with a friend until Wednesday. You know what that means brothers, 48hrs shed time, & I operate with very little sleep during a normal week so... Watch this space. 😀 . . . . #handmade #knife #knifeporn #slipjoint #foldingknife #madeinnorthernireland #damascus #blackthornblades #pocketknife #edc #everydaycarry #slipjoint #uklegaledc #pocketknife #alecsteele
