    New hand made knife

    I have just received my new knife and have posted some pics of it.
    The knife was made by a customer who comes in the shop where I work. I got talking to the chap who was looking for some sealer for a rifle stock that he was making and we got chatting about guns and shooting when he said that he all so had made a few knifes. As soon as he said knife and hand made I was hooked as I have a love for most things that are hand made.He said he had some photos on his phone and I was soon flicking through and planing a new knife.We arranged to meet again and he said he would bring a laptop with more photos on and some blanks for me to try.A couple of weeks later and he was back with laptop and some blanks and template and we set about the design for a new knife.And being a retired army man and keen hunter he knew a lot about what made a good knife,so of he went with my design and about 4Click image for larger version.

The new knife is underway and I will post some pics on here when I get my hands on it. I would like to thank ### for the hard work he has put in to it(I dont know if he is is a member or not on here so have left his name out as have not asked him yet)
