About $80 and 6 hours of work not including curing time. Learned a few lessons along the way.
Nice I like the shape, an the wood
Thanks. Yeah it was unlike anything else I had. I had to have it.
The scales are curly maple, not sure what types of steel are in it but it took a long time to put an edge on. It's shaving sharp now, hopefully it holds and edge well.
This is actually the first time I've done any type of knife based fabrication. It's a great starting point.
Kewl. What's the steel mix?
Not a clue.
I purchased the blank.
very nice! you done good MM13!
Thanks. I'm relatively happy with it for a first attempt. On the next one I will definitely test fit everything before I apply epoxy (avoid the chips around the rods) and I'll make sure to use an epoxy with more than a 5 minute cure time.
Good job, I recently got into knife making I'm on my third right now, I'm guessing ill have it finished in the next week or two. Here's some pics
My first 2 attempts were actually better. I think I rushed this one.
It is definitely an art in itself.
I'm thinking I'm going to go with a file and cherry on the next one and hopefully get some decent file work done on it.
not bad at all! much better than i could make!
Looks like the worlds fanciest prison shank haha JK. Looks good. great job
This is beyond knife making , it sculpture , functional ,art..! It must bring a prideful smile. To you guys..! if I have a nickel left after divorce , we must talk..!
Very very cool, especially considering its your maiden voyage...cant wait to see build #2.
Thanks. Working on it now. I annealed the file this morning and just picked up the supplies for a forge.
