Damascus and ivory scrimshaw by Haraldr32 Damascus and ivory scrimshaw by Haraldr32
Here's a little kiridashi that I made for the birthday of my sister in law.

I forged It from a damascus bar that I made this week end at a little forge in Ostiche (Belgium) where I had the opportunity to use a 80kg power-hammer :D

The scale is made from a piece of mammoth ivory and has received a scrimshaw of her firstname in sinograms.

9cm length.

No other pictures this time ! Hope you like it ! :)




Voici un petit kiridashi que j'ai réalisé pour l'anniversaire de ma belle soeur.

Je l'ai forgé dans un morceau de damas que j'ai réalisé le weekend dernier dans une petite forge à Ostiche (Belgique), où j'ai eu l'occasion d'utiliser un marteau pilon de 80kg de masse tombante ! :D

La plaquette est faite dans un morceau d'ivoire de mammouth et a reçu un scrimshaw représentant le prénom de la future détentrice en sinogrammes.

9 cm de long.

Pas d'autres photos ce coup ci ! J'espère qu'il vous plaira ! :)

Okay, I love this piece a LOT. Simple, elegant, and beautifully crafted. But you must tell me, please, how did you get that blue highlight on the edge? I'm baffled. Is it just a paint of patina?

Thank you ! 

The blue line at the edge is simply the reflection of the sky on the polished bevel :)
