Default Some of my Works and WIP´s

Hello from Germany

This is my first Thread on this board, but I think i am in the right place to show some of my homemade knifes.

I am not the firearm-guy, mostly because the laws in my country sucks. But i do like me some good knifes and a bit bushcraft.

But for me the most Knifes for sell are not my type, and Knifes i likes were out of my price range.

So to cut the story short, here some of my works

My first Knife i made for myself as Bushcraft/Camping/Survival/Gardening tool


BBQ-KNife for an coworker



and a little Skinner for a befriended Hunter.....



And for now my final Outdoor knife, complete with my first electricochemical eatching.


All my blades are made from 1.2235 Steel or old Sawblades from an lumbermill, and i did all the heat threating myself. If somebody is interested in my way of work, i will be glad to show some tecniques i use

Nah, they are only functional, i really don´t watch out for an high end finish. The knifes i make will be beat up like hell, my only goal is that they can last, and that they can recieve some punishment, that will scare some factory made C**p to death.

I make them, i will work with them, and if i don´t like how they handle, i will improve my next project with the gained knowlege. When the next knife is ready, is polish up the last one, and give it away so that somebody else can have some fun with it. Why should i keep 20 knifes around, when i don´t use them?

Now some Pictures from the Production of my first Blade


After the first basic forming, i made the bevel with my homemade file jig, to get it right.


I cleaned the raw blase with sandpaper down to 500 grit, and went on to heat treatment. The only tools on my disposal were an old, big propane weed burner and some old fire bricks, so i build up some primitive heating chamber...


After 3 Minutes, the Blade was glowing good.....so i waited for 5 minutes before quenching the blade in used cooking oil (it was cheap, and it don´t **** up my well/Ground water if i spill something )



Here a short video from my setup

After Cleaning and tempering the blade ive got the real deal


Handles from birch wood.....



After this first taste i went online, and found some new ideas, so i gatherd new materials for blades....

and handles


Then i found out that you can build a electrochemical eatching maschine from an old laptop-charger ans some bits and pieces.....and after i took some Nailart decals from my wife´s hobbybox, i was able to make the small Cobra-logo you can see on the last picture of my first posting

Hope you like what i showed you. More is on the way
