I've never seen a pattern like this in a welding... Most handsome!
Some day, I'd really like to learn this technique. It will be enough with rose, drill and twist welding for now x3 That's the limit for me right now..
How the flying heck did you do this?! It's like two serpents and a lightning-flame-thingy!! Awesome beyond words!

Thanks again :)
Well, rose and twist is quite difficult so don´t be to hard to yourself!
Your concepts, broncecasts and helm´s deep are really nice.
The pattern is a type of "firecraker". Not a extreme one but an interesting one ;)

How much does it cost for you to do these?

Well the material is not very expensive. I don´t know how much it was exactly but I would say (after 3 years) for the steal, wood and brass.....50€?! May be. The time to do this is the factor that would make a knife/sword expansive in the end.....
Thanks for the comment! And Merry Christmas!

das metall sieht echt genial aus!
es ist immer wieder punktuell verbogen wenn ich das richtig aus den Kommentaren gelesen habe
ich würde zu gerne mir mal eine eigene Klinge machen, muss ja nicht gleich Damast sein ^^
leider weis ich nicht wo ich das mal ausprobieren/lernen könnte -.-

Danke für den comment. Oft bieten Messerschmiede Kurse an, bei denen Anfänger sich ihr eigenes Messer schmieden können. Evtl. gibt es bei dir in der Gegend auch Schmiedetreffen oder einen Messermacher, der dich mal ein Tag mitarbeiten lässt. Schau mal im Messerforum ob es gerade was gibt.

This pattern done by hand was a pain in the a**! My appreciation to the masters of the past who have done such stuff without machinery!

How did you get the pattern on the blade?

Reiam Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013   General Artist
Well, pattern weldet : [link]
I used two different toolsteel for the pattern. This knife is my first try in using the spezial technic i only know as "firecracker" (its how the steel should be forged to get a special type of pattern).
Thanks for your interest.

Do you take special orders from people wanting unusual items? What price per hour do you take?
Reply
:iconreiam:
Reiam Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012   General Artist
Oh, well...sometimes I sell one of my knifes but I rarely take orders (to little time). For example I needed over 45 hours for the "Hirschfänger" because of the pattern.

What dimensions does the "hunter knife" have? Smithing when it is at it's best I'd say.

Well the blade is 23cm(~9in)long and 2,7cm wide. The total length is about 35cm(~13,7in).

That is very nice work, It is very impressive that you kept a planed pattern to your weld.
It looks like a long saex met Rambo,

sort of reminds me of the rambo knife but this is longer and thinner

Well, some would call this a "fighter"-knifetype. The Rambo knife(First Blood) is more like a Bowie i think. But the saw on the back of the knife looks really a bit like the one in ´Rambo´. Thanks for the comment!
