    Hey! I made this one for competition at Knifest (some wood, rope, ball, can, etc.. chopping), I use that oportunity to try different type of bauernwehr/hunting knife than last time. If this one survive all competition I want to made small knife, fork and sheath. Blade I forged from old wagon leaf spring, at handle I use walnut wood. Fittings and rivets are from brass sheet.

    Recycled puko

    So, because I lost one needle decide to make stitchless sheath This is my first attempt so I use scrap leather (that unfortunatelly is not good for shaping so tip and mouth are not perfect) I use there one side wood insert to fortify whole sheath. If you decide that this one is ugly enought for you I´ll look for better piece of leather and made new one....

    Grooved knife

    ¨Hey! Excuse my late answer, I was for some days out of internet range. . Do you put a liner against the antler? - Yes I rather use it. Are you using it on the push or on the pull? -This one is only for pull, but work surprisingly fast- one groove at this knife take about 5 minutes scraping but then about half hour polishing with sandpaper on wood stick and needle files...
