So I bought a new hammer therefor needed to forge out a whole knife with said hammer, all by hand like someone who s doesn’t have a powerhammer 👀 it’s hard work 😓 

This knife has its bevels polished out using natural whetstones, This process means the upkeep of the blade should be significantly easier especially if you know your way around a whetstone.  Flattening the bevels and refining them can be a chore in the initial stages so I’ve done the groundwork for you so it’ll be nice to take to the stones for your polishing pleasure.  

These knives are made from carbon steels not stainless steel, this allows them to take a fine edge fairly easily but has a downside that they will rust not given the proper care and attention.  Carbon steel forms a patina which can be very beautiful and acts as a protective layer slowing further corrosion.
