  1. Thanks PP , unfortunate i used poor mans solution and use superglue for some sort of light stabilization then oiled the wood. Burl is from our local trees.
  2. Sins some friends saw my fishknife they asked me to make some more for a show.. Not knowing how this will sell or not or even w to ask yet i decided to make this 4-some in my own style. I think they came out nice, hamon and all, home salvaged burl (Last one being my fishknife) I made them from old nicholson files and Twens Eekwood , Teakwood.
  3. any a big Yes, love the creativity in most of your works. This is a perfect example of exactly that.

    I'm BAAAACK!

    was just thinking of that and saw you posted this, so nice kubolo hybrid especial the handle work
  5. lovely knife, your making progress sins last work i check out =)
  6. Love it all, you did something thats on my bucketlist with amazing results!
  7. almost like your first knife then, i like that upwards handle placement as it differs from traditional
  8. beginning to like those little pokers more and more, this is a fine made example
  9. Point on exquisite art
  10. Thanks for taking the time Charles. Made me kinda laugh as that is precisely what is was going for I assure you the false edge is in line, not stinking out. The brainfart happens in the blade / handle area and the handle curvatures is also confusing for the eyes. all together making it imperfect and asking some time to point out the not obvious. File teeth where not taking in consideration when grinding out the knife geometry (would not sacrifice that) . The book looks promising , Ill have a look in the stores and ask some leather working "colleges" at the fair.
  11. Just some weeks from now. The handle was much nicer after the first oil was applied (no pics). Now it has worked/used look if that is what you mean ?
  12. Thx Brian, as your a right this leather work was really time consuming i did the sheath hole by hole stitch by stitch w only a needle and some pliers. I would not recommend that.
  13. Grindwork looks very nice for you just starting out !
  14. approved for sure, gefeliciteerd
