Pharmacist's Knife

Recommended Posts

This was a knife I made a couple of years ago for a friend who works at a pharmacy. It is made from a 1095 file, the wood is poplar that I aged to a darker color, and the fittings are of a mix similar to pewter (no lead though). I made this in 2 days which is significantly faster than I normally work. The back of the pommel was engraved (pretty badly as it was my first try at it and was done with a pocket knife) with the logo of his pharmacy, an outline of the U.S. on a mortar and pestle. This was also the first time I used my forgemark and it didn't turn out well on this one.

Very nice.

 

I like the way you poured that window in the pommel.

Thanks, that was an idea I had to help it lock on but it ended up looking pretty cool too.
