For our anniversary, my wife got me a day of forging with Jamie Lundell, who won an episode of Forged In Fire (S1E7, Gladius).

This knife took me about 8 hours. Jamie could have knocked it out in 2, and in fact made one of my design along with me and an additional wakizashi blade during the day.

It was a great day and I learned a ton dealing with such an experienced bladesmith.

I decided you go with a Tanto blade, because I hadn't really worked in straight lines. There's a reason. Straight lines are incredibly difficult to maintain. It really is just absurd. Its annoying enough trying to have the blade not wobbly, but doing that while keeping a straight line profile is killer.

The handle is Walnut, secured by brass pins to the high carbon steel. It is far from perfect, but I'm definitely progressing.

When I get faster, I will DEFINITELY be making a freaking 20" bowie as a day project.

For our metric friends: 20" is about 15 Celcius.
