Thread: This evenings tinkering, another knife project

  1. #1

    This evenings tinkering, another knife project

    Been a good long while since I did one of these!

    Got a few projects on the bench at the minute. Tonight, or should I say last night, I've been sticking a handle on the bottom one in this pic:





    The handle timber is stabilised Elm burl and brass liners.







    This evening, after the timber was cut and flattened off, i drilled the pin holes and did some dry fitting.











    She's now glued up, and I'm living the longest 24 hours of my life till i can start shaping the handle. :pirate:





    The blade is 154CM stainless.

    Choon in later on today for the next instalment. If you can be bovvered that is.

    Off up to Norfolk stalking in an hour or so, but got this where i need it this evening.


    I'll 'finish' it next week some time, but for now I've left the bulk of the handle a bit chunky so it will fit another sheath this weekend.

    Gives an idea about how the timber will look though.









    Fank you, g'night, much love.

    Looks fantastic digger. The brass scales worked out really well. Are you using a pigment in the epoxy to fill the file work ?

    Glad you like it boys.


    I took a trade membership a fair while ago to sell some on here, but it seems those two commissions have gone south as they got fed up with waiting, despite the fact that they'd gone through the exact same scenario of having to wait on the knives I did for them before!

    I wanted to get cracking on them over my Christmas break, but my brother died on Christmas Eve which kind of put the kibosh on any and all projects that I had planned.

    Seeing as i I lost two mates over it as well, I'll not be doing commissions anymore. Instead I'll just tinker away in my own good time without any fallouts.

    For me the knife work is very much a case of doing 10 or 20 minutes on it here and there whenever I get the time.
    It will take me many months to do what the likes of Stuart Mitchell can do in a week or so. But then I've done less than 20 knives in my life, that's just a small batch for Stu!

    So my recommendation is the same as I always say when I get a PM about it, look not to me, but one of the trade members. For therein lies happiness in a short turnaround time.

    No pigment this time David, left it clear.

    Was thinking it would allow the brass to shine through on a sunny day. Not had a chance to see if that worked yet though.
