G'day everyone, I been looking through the forum at some of the quallity workmanship of members hand made knives and thought I might throw a couple of mine up for comment. All these are made from Chainsaw bar using stock removal & polishied to a mirror finish. I've used various Handle materials but out of all of them "The Squid" was the hardest to make, I explain as I go through the pictures. My first ever knife was this one a big Bowie 14" long, Stainless finger guard, merbu timber handle & Brass pins. Next I had a crack at a Small hunter with gut hook, Stainless bolsters & pins, Deer Antler & Winchester 357 Shell for decoration. And last of all "The Squid" A small Skinner. Stainless Bolsters and my very first attempt at Free hand Hollow grinding (I did a little Happy dance with this grind :) ) and finally the handle material, it's stone with a prehistoric type of squid. The work involved in grinding & polishing is not for the impatient many days were spent on getting this right and to be honest I wouldn't do it again, one slip and "CRACK" all over red rover. But I don't regret making it as it makes a good talking piece over a beer or three. Enjoy comment from you guys would be appreciated.
