Reproduction 13th Century Knife Project, blade is wrought iron with a steel edge forgewelded to it


This is the display board showing the steps for creating the reproducton 13th century knife blade. I smelted the bloom that the piece in the upper right hand corner came from Thanksgiving 2007

The bar of wrought iron and the blade forged from it were from a bloom I worked on done by Micheal McCarthy at the Ashokan Bladesmith Seminar. the composite blades are wrought iron bodies with steel forgewelded to them as an edge which is how blades were constructed in the 13th and 14th centuries.
