A knife.

Recommended Posts

I am rather new here, and I mostly just read.. But the forum keeps telling me I haven't posted in several weeks and I should so here goes.

This knife is a simple double edged dagger, forged from the tine of an old garden fork. I quenched it in water, and baked it at 350-400 degrees for about 45 minutes to relax the metal.

I carved the sheath from oak and pinned it together with cedar pins.

Comments and Critique are welcome!

I'm still working on single edged knives and leather sheaths.
Good job.
Think about applying your wood carving skills to your knife handles and carve sheath and handle to match. Definitely a seller.

I have made a smaller knife that I carved the handle and sheath from the same wood and then cut them apart. It was kind of interesting.

I carved this sheath as an afterthought, originally I didn't know what I was going to do.

Thanks for all the compliments!
