amtler dirk

Recommended Posts

ok. heres where i am with that bloody dirk. by-knife and fork are finished, sheath is made and carved, blade polished etc. it still needs a belt loop, final assembly and a once over before it leaves the shop. i re-carved the pommel, but the photograph highlights some flaws that aren't obvious in person. anyway, pics:

Well done, I really like the way the fork and knife fit in the sheath.

Awesome. B) That came out really nice, especially the way the byknife handles fit around the scabbard throat, which I know is what was driving you nuts on this one. Superb.

A dirk worthy of the Greene Man. :)

 

Original style and solution. My hat of to you!

Could you show a pic or two where the volume of the scabbard is evident? I am especially interested in seeing how the dirk and the scabbard transition over to each other (that is quite the tricky part!).

And could you please post a side (edge or spine) wiew? I suppose that, due to the curvature of antler axis of handle and the edge is not the same... is that right?

Cool! It looks like Satan Sheath with the fork and knife in there.

Just a few more (crappy) pics which should answer Petr and Peter's questions.

and Walter, the sheath does look a bit like a Guerrimo Del Toro blind goat faced devil thing, but what can ya do...?

 

oh, and don't worry about the shininess - i just put a fresh coat of linseed oil on it, and my camera was dying so i didn't have timed to take the pics in natural light...
