So what is a boy blacksmith supposed to do when he needs a valentine present? 



Why make the lucky girl a knife!



I mean, what says love more than an shiny, sharp, hand-forged knife with a heart on the tang?

Two things:
1. Wow. I want one. (The knife, not the boy; got one of those! Cheesy
2. I learned what the "handle" of the knife is called for real!

WONDERFUL present!

I want that knife.  I kind of hate valentine's day presents with no real function.  This one does have a function!

I really like it- not only is it functional, but it's totally unique! And its thoughtful since you made it yourself.

If you didn't mind other girls having duplicates, you might suggest that there's a market...!

So freakin' cool!!!!  I've been trying to get people to give me cool knives as gifts for various holidays for years and nobody will. (Bought, not made since no one I know is a blacksmith.)  I'm jealous. That is super, super cool. *Totally hitting this rocks!*

Nothing quite says love like giving a deadly weapon as a present. This is pretty epic!

Every girl wants something special for valentine, and a handmade knife is just as good Cheesy Lovely work, really nice with the heart on the handle.
