    My latest Tommi puukko sheath

    I purchased Bison leather from Springfield Leather Company. The two hides I have vary in texture from relatively smoothe to heavy pebble grain. they also vary in thickness. I learned to thin them if they are too thick. https://www.springfieldleather.com/Leather/Deer-Elk-Bison .

    WIP - Sami influenced gift knives

    All components and design work together for three outstanding knives giving life to your vision. Natural materials will hand you surprises from time to time, but each one is a learning experience and many times can be incorporated into the piece.

    Few recent nordic knives

    Your knives and sheaths have graceful lines and perfect craftsmanship. Nordic knives, puukkot in particular, are the only knives I make. The puukkoseppa of Finland are some of the most talented craftsmen in the world. Please continue posting your work.

    The bar is already very high, now you raise it up even higher. Way to go Wes, your work encourages us to be better knife makers.

    Joshua has given some very good tips. I like the acetate idea.

    Adam, If you keep the ricasso, sharpening after assembly won't be a problem. Whether there is a ricasso or not, the blade should be at the final dimension when fit to the bolster. This will assure a tight fit. My final sharpening and stropping is done after final assembly

    Adam, This is a very interesting WIP. The design elements, thought process along with your craftsmanship are making gifts that will be used and admired for a lifetime. 80crv2 is a good steel choice and your other materials both traditional and non traditional will combine to create a beautiful knife. Throughout the fabrication process let your hands tell you what feels right. A knife, no matter how beautiful, must be useable. The T.L.A.F.A.R. That looks and feels about right principle be your guide. Thanks for taking the time to show us your methods.
