Old spring and flax straw


Recommended Posts

Here is one a started a while ago and recently finished.
Steel is from a short length of leaf spring I found in a field, so I'm guessing it's from some type of old farm machinery...handle wrap is linen twine made from flax straw a few years back I figured it's about time to put it to use :)
Works good enough for a beater...

cool, but then your tang is close enough to one of my designs, I am biased :D The flax works well with the rough hammer finish also, good choice.

Is the flax wrap sealed?

Glad you think so too :-)
No, it is not sealed, I just wrapped it around, tied some knots and stuffed the tail back underneath...I know it won't last overly long, but I can always re-wrap it or try something else too.
