Filing in details in the backbone of the blade gives it a great look. If you want to ramp that up a bit. Try carving a knife blade out of steel

that I thought I would try my hand at carving a bit of detail into the blade of one of my own.

The blade is O1 flat ground annealed. Here are a few images along the way. I am trying to make vines.









Files and chisels help remove the material from the opening. It's pretty slow going.



I use a Dremmel tool were ever I can.







I have it pre-beveled but not completly and will finish the bevel after I heat treat the blade.



I used a chisel to add texture to the vines and then applied gun bluing to color just the vines.



I made a set of Cocobolo Scales and then gave them 3 coats of super glue as a finish before epoxying them to the blade. Once I trim down the pins, I will give them one more coat of super glue.

I apply the super glue with my finger tip. You have to move fast and keep moving or you and the wood become one.





took some pictures but struggled with the lighting. The gun bluing does not photograph well.
