Here is one I just finished up, minus sheath. I'm calling it Splinter and it's your basic utility knife, the blade was forged from 1095 and 15N20, the handle is made from copper, maple burl, leather, and zyrcote. Thanks for looking. -Robert Burns
Started making a mushroom hunter's/utility knife for an avid mushroom and ginseng hunter. The steel is from a Nicholson file and I plan to have the handle made from walnut with pewter bolsters. There are some interesting looking swirls in the blade upon etching. Not quite sure how that happened. Maybe someone can tell me? I normalized 3 times, quenched twice in canola oil, and tempered 3 times at 450F. I was worried that I may have messed up the heat treat but the blade can be bent and returns to its original shape and it holds quite a nice edge. Let me know your thoughts!
