18th c. Ball Grip Belt Knife

Not a new design, but very nice curly maple on it. 9 1/2" blade of 01 steel. A tad under 3/16" where the tapers begin. Lightly aged, iron pins, wood has a gunstock oil finish. A very light weight knife for it's size.

Very nice work, I love the long graceful tapers of it. You are right, that is a very nice piece of maple, too.

A good friend told me one time about forging "What is there not to like, you get to break all the rules you were told as a kid, don't play with that it is sharp, don't play with fire, and don't beat on that"
Wade Holloway

See some of my work.
