A fast & wicked pair of sisters - more knives!

Finished these up last weekend. Everyone that's laid hands on them can't believe just how fast and light they are - VERY deceptive in relation to their looks!



One's a bit plain, while the other is obviously pretty racy - easy to see the fact that they're siblings, though. Each blade is just a pinch over 7 inches long, with an overall length of 12.5 inches. Both are 3/16" 1095, have tapered tangs and gorgeous wood and ito, and were heat treated with clay - but with very different coating methods.

The first provided all the flash - best hamon I've ever managed (with one upcoming possible exception) and Amboyna scales:





The next two shots give you a decent view of the sori that both have - such great curves!





This one's got a simple, straight hamon and curly koa scales under her wrap. I think it's understated, but elegant:










Comments welcome. I had a lot of fun making these two, and they really seemed to come together all on their own.

Thanks for looking!

Len, let me know if I'm wearing out my welcome posting all these knives in the gun photos forum!!!!

Very nice. The 1095 makes for a nice hamon.

Re: A fast & wicked pair of sisters - more knives!

I could have sworn I'd answered that - sorry!

Yes, I do sell them. However, I don't take orders. This is a hobby for me, and I don't want it to become work. If you're interested, though, the piece here with the koa handles and the plain hamon is available.

I live just south of Colden, NY in ski country. Glenwood, to bee exact.

Thanks for looking!
