DavidM Posted August 24, 2009 Share Posted August 24, 2009 Hello, I've been lurking here for a few years now, and i figured it's time I finally posted something. This is the first knife I've ever seen through to the end. Lots of unmounted blades and little knicknacks...but never finished one before. I was going for something kinda like a bird knife for cleaning ducks and such. The blade is coil spring from an 80's model nissan 300zx, so I have no idea what its actually made of. Seems to want to get brittle really easy, so I had to draw quite a bit of hardness out of the thing. The fittings are nicklesilver that I bought from a knife show years ago (wish I could still get it that cheap). As far as I can figure, the wood is some local black walnut that has been sitting in the wood pile here for lord knows how long. Just treated it with linseed. The tang is about 30% the width of the blade and is peened to hold the handle together. Very solid handle. The fork is just there to try and prop up the blade.
