Wrought Iron Fighting Knife

This is an example of a fighting knife that was made here in the shop.  The 10″ blade is hand forged from original un-worked Wrought Iron from the 18th Century.  It was then heat treated using all 18th Century methods to ensure the blade held a good edge.  The S-guard and pommel were also both forged from the same wrought iron.  The bolster was hand turned using the same iron too.   It features an antler handle that has a through tang that was riveted through the pommel.
