A little rougher this time

Postby Storm Crow on Sat Mar 06, 2010 8:21 pm

This was a knife commissioned by a fellow who saw my girlfriend's knife at various stages of completion and wanted something along the same lines but a bit bigger and more masculine. I sketched out a design as he watched, we agreed on the price, he pulled out some cash, and I went and started hammering.

The blade is forge finished car spring, edge and false edge hand filed, railroad spike double guard, bodark (the way Texans say "osage orange") and mesquite for the handle, Kydex pocket sheath, although a couple of loops added would make it easily belt carry. As is standard operating procedure, the knife was shaving sharp when handed over to him.
