Hey guys, New to the forum and new to Bladesmithing, Been doing stock removal, but starting to learn Forging, My last build I have been forging into shape, and forged the rough blade angle bevels, anyway, here's a couple pics of my first two knives, and a couple I'm working on,, thanks for looking!
Oh yea, The steel on these knives is from the Steering assembly of a 67 VW Bus, with Copper liners and Purple Heart scales, The last one has Kinda spalted walnut with Purple heart and Black walnut accents.
Oh And I Built the sheaths also, Hybrid Kydex and Leather.

The purple heart one stands out to me, it has a cool look like a shark bit it...Does that cutout have a function or is it ornamental?

Hey guys, Thank you for the Kind words! The "Shark Bite" (I love that!) Is just ornamental, I was going to bevel and sharpen, but the customer was a collector and was just going to put it in a glass case so he said not to worry about it, man Purple heart is HARD wood, burnt out a couple band saw blades on that one. The other knife is Purple heart also, just a bad pic, I'll find a better one and change it out.
Opaul, Chris, Dennis, Sean, And John, Thank you so much!
