a couple knives


Recommended Posts

So heres a couple knives i just finished. The RR spike knife is for a friend. I made sure he knows that it is low carbon and wont hold a good edge for long. I added a little file work on the spine and bolster to spice it up a bit. The second knife is a little push knife im sending to my Dad to put a handle on. He will make a leather sheath to clip in your boot or on your belt. Its 5160 spring steel, hardended in canola oil and tempered in the oven. The blade is 2.5" long and 1" wide. Thankd for looking.

I use needle files to do the spine work before hardening. It's pretty easy actually. Just alternate sides with a half round or round file down the spine then come back with a square file or another with a sharp edge and go back down the spine again alternating sides. You can make many different patterns using different files. Your imagination is your only limit. Hope that helps and thanks for checking it out.
