Oyster Knife


Recommended Posts

This is an oyster knife I made to be auctioned off in Delaware for a fallen policeman's family. The steel is from a very large pry bar that i've made a few other things out of and really like. I think its something like 1060. Its about 1" dia...which nearly kills me to work down with my little 2lb hammer. :) The blade is actually differentially hardened, but I didn't have time to try and bring out the hamon since I only had a couple weeks to work on this. IF you turn the blade and look at it just right, you can still see it. Pins are brass. Scales are cocobolo.

Speaking as someone who grew up around the Chesapeake Bay, that will shuck a lot of oysters. Fine job and a great cause!

That's pretty wood. Always cool to see something a little different on here. Hope it brings a good price for the family of the officer.
