Camp bolos

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Camp bolos

Post by Storm Crow » Thu Apr 06, 2017 1:39 pm

Here are a couple of camp bolos that went out to customers recently. Both of these started out as demonstration pieces, showing how I use the dies on my power hammer to forge blades. Neither one of the customers who ended up with them had me build sheaths for them. The blades are a little over 12" long, with false edges on top.

This first one was for the first STAB (South Texas Association of Bladeslingers) get-together out at my shop back at the end of January, forged from 1084. I finished it out with tan over black paracord on top of a neoprene foundation.

The second was forged from 5160 as a demonstration for a fellow who came to my shop to study my home-brewed guided helve power hammer to help build his own. He ended up buying the demo blade from me, and I finished it out in black over black paracord over neoprene.
