Tiny blacksmiths knife


Recommended Posts

Here's a tiny little blacksmith/viking knife I knocked out the other week. Just over 3 inches long, with an inch of blade. small notch behind the blade to rest a finger in and the back a little wider to rest a thumb on. Made from a scrap of steel left over from an old socket chisel. First pic is on a 3 inch Post It note. post-182-0-76724100-1367987654_thumb.jpg


Started out as just a goof, to see if I could effectively work with what was really just a scrap, about a 1/4 inch wide and maybe 2, 2.5 inches long. Most of the socket chisel steel was used in a folding knife, and this scrap was just the left over after drawing out the tang of that folder. The socket is still waiting to be turned into a candle cup.


It holds better than expected. post-182-0-71752700-1367987696_thumb.jpg
