It's been a cold, wet winter and getting quality shop time is hard.  But here are some recent projects...

This one was forged from a couple of old Nicholson files and saw plate to around 190 layers.  Brass guard/pommel with buckeye burl handle.

This one was forged from 8670 and 1095 with a stabilized antler base handle and brass guard.

This is a cable Damascus san mai with an 80crv2 core.  Antler base and African Blackwood handle.

This was forged from L-6 and 1095 with antler handle.  The guard was bronze from a bearing retainer.
