Skab Leathworks and Forge?? My first forged knife

Well making knives is not why I started getting more into forge work....but I couldn't not make one or two right?? So this one started as an HC railroad spike. I really had no plan just heated it up and started to beat on it. And this is the shape that came out. Tapered the handle a bit to get a little more length out of it and then twisted. And had seen another somewhere that had a skull on the I had to try that as well. Heat treated in the forge and then tempered in an oven. So far it is holding a great edge, for a rail road spike at least.

Now stand by for the sheath/ display I plan to make for this thing. Something I've never seen, hope I can pull it off.
