I started to do forging of blades in 2012. I work with carbon instrument steels such as u8a, u10, u12, 9khs, KHVG, shkh15, kh12mf and stainless steel 95x18. The blades are made by hand entirely. Main amount of the blades are Yakut, rhombic and classic. I also make blades from damascus steel. When I have time I make axes. Tempering is performed according to the steel grade and the data from a heat-treater handbook.
p.s. I do not make cold arms!
