Hand Forged DAMASCUS SICKLE out of Rusted Bearings Karambit Knife Fighting

qcreek11 May 11

Hello guys, this time we Hand Forged a Damascus SICKLE out of four ball bearings. We started this project back in February 2022 and this took us almost a year to be completed as we forged it by hand following ancient smithing manual.

I recommend you to watch full video you’ll enjoy revealing damascus patterns and it’s final results, I tried my best to make best sickle on internet. I didn’t make it too sharp because I never make it to cut grass or harvesting of vegetables, this is just a fantasy object and can’t use in real life.

I used these types of steel.
High carbon bearing steel= 52100 chromium steel
1020 wrought iron
Overall weight= 1300 Grams
Overall Sickle Length= 18 inches
Handle Length= 8 inches
Blade Length= 10 inches
