Caribiou with a broken back


Recommended Posts

Here is a knife I've just finished up. The handle is caribou, the blade is 1084. 6" blade just over 1/4" thick at the break, about 1 3/4" wide at the belly. I'd be happy to hear your thoughts.

Nice curves on the blade, only crit I have is maybe something acting as a 'bolster' to ease the transision of handle to blade, it's just my oppinion though...other than that, I like size, shape and leather work,( my downfall)

Nice work Nate!

I love the way the Caribou bone narrows down at the blade, very good job of marrying that one up with the right blade to the right bone! rockon.gif

Another winner... the blade proportions are just right, and the handle looks like it was made just for that blade.

Thanks for the compliments guys. The antler is amazing to me, I don't even really feel like I made anything, just helped the antler become what it should be.

 

Truly! It looks like the blade was in there the whole time just waiting to be revealed...
