Homemade Golok


I want to make a machete always.
But I fouled up several times
before I got a good material.




This is Japanese forging steel sheet.
I make it with a hand grinder
with no extra heat treatment.




Full tang grip
Juniper wood scales
I'll add some rivet on this.




It has balanced appearance,
and peculiar press machine marks.




I throw up its leather sheath.
It leaves some room for improvement.




Total length : 468mm
Blade length : 320mm
Blade thickness : 4.1mm
Weight : 440g
