I made this knife with 150 year old anchor chain.

Sure! It has a white steel core. The wrought iron on the outside is softer and easier to sharpen. This makes it easy to maintain great geometry on the cutting edge. The handle is red micarta and carbon fiber. The knife is 191mm long and weighs 98grams.
I got the anchor chain as a challenge from a regular visitor of the monthly open house at my forge. He is a metallurgy professor and a fellow Japanese bladesmith.
