I hesitated long time between straight razor, long and big fixed blade, enormous balisong/sword . Finaly i I decided to make something i don't do very often. A tang building and a dagger. I do dagger only for build off or something in that way. That is always difficult for me and i enjoy to try each time
I draw that fastly that morning
A piece of XC75 (more or less 1075), i draw in the middle of the centred edge
The various piece, the steel, stainless steel for gard, ebony, padouk and there will be a piece or two of leather.
The point has been cut with cutting disk, and put in shape with 60 grit belt.
The start of the edge is done with dremel carbide rotary burr.
The grind is done with Grit 60 and 120
I drilled four hole of 2mm in the steel, and i filed it I cut to the "right size".
The various part are drilled, i have to put the leather piece.
After two normalization, oil hardening and flash gold tempering
