Hello! It looks like I'm the new guy here. My name is Tim Zowada I have been making custom knives professionally since 1982. I specialize in forged blades, Damascus steel and home smelted bloomery steel. I have known Jim Kelso for a very long time. I have always been captivated by his work. I have finally come to the place where I can start experimenting with carving and engraving. I have a lot to learn. But, I can see there is a lot of great information on this forum.
Here is my first attempt at this sort of work:
Blade: Home smelted Timahagane and meteorite with pine branch engraving. Scales: Mammoth ivory with Copper pine cone.
I look forward to all the opportunities here. If anyone ever needs help with forging steel, please don't hesitate to ask.
