K.K.Janzen posted a topic in Show and TellA friend of mine is getting married, so I told him I was going to make him something out of metal. A few months pass and I haven't decided what it'll be yet - luckily he makes a suggestion. He's a big Liam Hoffman fan, and he likes his Jaegers, but he wants an EDC size. So here she is. 3" blade, 6" overall. Cocobolo handle!
Bird and trout hunting WIP
Ross Vosloo posted a topic in Show and TellThought i would start a WIP on my next project, a bird and trout hunting knife. First up is the design process. I wanted something that would come in under 250mm (10") total length, and be nice in the hand and easy to control for skinning or delicate work. Its going to be used for hunting and fishing here in Zim, so should be able to fillet a bream (Oreochromis niloticus) which can have quite a deep body on a big one, and be tough enough to slit the throat of a thrashing wildebeest that my uncles .375 messed up on... again. The steel used in going to be old leaf spring, from the same piece as my previous blade. After some performance testing I have no doubts as to its durability and edge retention. Handle will once again be teak (Baikiaea plurijuga). Im still torn between full tang and hidden tang construction. any one have any thoughts? here is the working design: if anyone wants to weigh in on the design, now's the time
