Recommended Posts

This is the latest end product of my grinding projects. Made from some of Aldo's good 1084. 11" overall with a 6.25" cutting edge. Full tang w/ cocobolo slabs and seven brass pins. Very coarse file work and mustard finish for a rustic look. I had my doubts as it progressed but I'm pretty happy with it.

 

Thanks for lookin'!

Thanks! I'm actually an assistant warden at a correctional facility. I was a little put out the first time a saw a nicely made knife called a shiv (it was a Fogg shiv), so now I exclusively refer to the jail stickers as "shanks". The tooth brush ones are pretty common, the best made one I ever saw was a couple feet long and made from a steel bucket handle. The scariest one was a porcelin shard from a broken toilet that was about a foot and a half long... but I digress...

 

 

I really like it too. I'm a big fan of shiv's and bell dirks.

 

Thanks! I was going for Bell-ish.
