[Not lilmookie] It's taken me eight years to reach this point [DIY cutlass]

quote [ ... I moonlight as a bladesmith to help pay the bills, or at least that's what I keep telling myself whenever I buy another rusty piece of machinery off craigslist. If you just want to see more pretty sword pictures, scroll to the bottom. However, if you're interested in the forging and casting techniques that went into creating this blade, keep reading!... ]

This album will cover both damascus forgewelding techniques as well as simple and affordable Lost-PLA 3D printing to metal casting techniques. And of course, if you don't know the first thing about forging but want to learn both how to build your own forge and use it, check out my "Dirt Cheap" knife forging guide here: https://imgur.com/a/Vr4UD

This one isn't me, but it custom fit that guy. It's a really amazing project!

Looks amazing. I deal in edged weapons and have a great appreciation for the skill it takes to make them.
