Depends upon the size of work that you would be interested in completing.

Knives varying in length but typically around the 8.5 range.
Not too large of a forge obviously but still interested in weight speculation.

Looking to "learn by doing" in order to provide an additional skill set for my joes.

Finally picked up a decent anvil and forge, so I'm back to forging. Slow but steady process of forging a karambit from a piece of a broken jackhammer bit. I'll post up when it's finished.

Recent Work

My daughter asked for a Hope Chest.

I chose to replicate a Viking Age chest that was found in Sweden.

The body is 5/4 oak from the farm of a friend and was hand finished.
I applied a red ocher milk paint and hand rubbed linseed oil into the surface.
I had a great time with the forge work, especially recreating the lock and key
I added a copper Norse World Tree to the back.

Phenomenal work. That exceeds the quality of SCA Laurel "masterpieces" I've seen. How many hours involved?

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
