Scott does a lot of hand-forging (no power hammer involved) when teaching introductory bladesmithing classes. Generally he finishes at least one knife during the class, but a few rough-forged blades always get completed at a later date. During his June Intro to Bladesmithing class at the Virginia Institute of Blacksmithing, Scott forged a Zulu/Chief - a knife with a blade like our popular Zulu model but the size of our Chief (i.e. a large hunter).
Steel: Hand-forged 1075
Blade: 5.125 inches (from tip to guard)
Overall Length: 10.5 inches
Guard: Bronze w/black coved & bronze spacer
Handle: Desert Ironwood
Sheath: Tooled leather drop
She's a beautiful and functional tool . . .
. . . that comes with a quality crafted, hand-tooled leather sheath.
Made by ABS Master Bladesmith, E. Scott McGhee,
this is a piece of functional art that can be enjoyed for generations.
Thanks for looking.
