Brass Tacks

I suspect that all Brass Tacks are made in ONE Factory. After 9 stores and over 2 DOZEN "brands" and seeing no difference in fit or finish I bought 2 12" sections of 1/16th brass rod and have begun cold forging my own.
They are for a new style of wood Scabbard for some of my miniatures, they incorporate a cold forged brass or copper belt/boot/pocket clip that can also double as a Bail for wearing as a neck knife.

Minon #20

This tiny guy went so fast to his new owner, that I didn't even had time to make some pics.

The steel is 1.2379 (D2), hardened up to about 60 HRc, hammered copper guard, tiger wood and sapele wood handle. The sapele showed some very interesting flader, but it coudn't be photographed very well.

At first I named it "Red" - a name, showing my total lack of imagination. But after I sent it, I had a few conversations with the new owner, who sait it looks…

A classical hunting knife. The handle is walnut and acacia. 1.2379 steel. Here I tried a new stitch for the sheath. It came out really interesting, but it gave me some hard time to make it.…

Two knives with forged silversteel blades

End of May 2016 there was a plein air in Sopot. The theme was "The knife". Lots of really skilled bulgarian knifemakers took part and showed the different stages of knifemaking. There were also two of the best bulgarian blacksmiths - Nikolai Nikolov and Mihail Kochew. They both showd how to forge a blade from a round steel bar. I decided to give a try and under the supervision of them both I forged two silversteel blades.
As a matter of fact, Niki and Mihail made forging look…
