Ingredients. Damascus W's dagger I forged, desert iron wood and phosphor bronze


Measuring for tang hole

Drilled

Inner diameter ground in.

Filing hole open to fit

Drifting into place

Rotary tool used to create shoulder slots

Flame bit for the corners.

Inner diameter polished and ready for profiling.

Profiled

Wood drilled from both ends and being rasped to fit.

spacer drilled and fitted

threaded rod welded to tang. Be sure to temper the weld so it isn't brittle.

wood, guard and spacer rough fit.

Bronze piece for the pommel

Drilled, tapped and fitted

Spacer rough shaped

checking symmetry

prepping for something different









All polished up. What is he thinking of??

Marking to rough grind the handle

rough grind and fit

Home made lathe. This works better if you have a round piece





I wasn't happy with this one so I used my dad's lathe to do it properly.

Bronze patina i make. 1pt flowers of sulpher and 1 pt bicarbonate of soda. mix and heat in a metal container until melted. mix with water and apply.

Pieces with patina. Note the new pommel. Much better.

finishing my special spacer

all done. superglue in place then grind off the tips.
