so i, being the knife lover that i am, made three knives during the festival


first off i made this small butter/cheese knife in the elf lady style




then later on i made this small skinning knife i suppose i can call it


fun fact, this was a part of the course on how to case harden things, it's made out of mild steel but it should be at around 0,7% carbon content, about 3-4mm into the surface we estimated, i'll put a nice rosewood handle on that with brass fittings once i get that nice knifemaking book in my hands, i hope there's a part on handlemaking in there


then comes my favourite one yet, the one i'll probably mess up with a grinder next weekend

post-29278-0-95589500-1401668433_thumb.j im trying to make something along the lines of a lapinleuku, more commonly known as a Sami hunting knife, and im currently debating wether i should go with a reindeer antler handle or a birch handle, opinions anyone?
