Knife for a Marine

Recommended Posts

I was contacted by the parents of a Marine to build a knife with a Marine Corps theme. The parents gave me a rasp that the father and son worked with when the Marine was younger and request that I use it for the blade. They also wanted his initials on the sheath and a dyed wood handle and when I sent them pics of this block they were all in. I came up with WW2 hat and lapel pins and used the lapel pins on the handle and my friend KT made the awesome one of kind sheath using the hat pin.

The blade is 6 7/8" from tip to bolster and the total length of the knife is 11 3/4". The handle is dyed and stabilized maple burl.

 

Any and all comments are welcome.
