    I Made A Couple More Knives

    I am a very low production knifemaker, only three or four per year leave my bench. Here are a couple of recent creations along with my sheath work. My brand is "4BAR4 USA", eventually will become "4BAR4 FORGE USA" but not quite there yet. I do not advertise nor have I committed a website for my goods as I have no shortage of buyers. Anyway, if you like knives here's a little eye-candy.

    Damascus Trout & Bird
    Full-tang trout/bird knife
    OAL: 7-1/8", Blade Length: 3-1/8"
    Cutting Edge: Mirror finish and razor sharp @ 19.7 degrees
    Steel: Crafted from 416 layer USA made Damascus bar
    Guard: Nickel Silver deep etched to a satin finish
    Scales: G-10 with Nickel Silver pins (peened)

    Thank you!
    I forgot to mention that I'm a stickler for balance... this is what you don't see. The North Park Special just after heat-treat, as you can see I fully ported that tang for balance. Had to do the fancy file work pre heat treat, those are the files that I used.

    Nice work.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
