A quick one before the holidays


Recommended Posts

Here is one I am just wrapping up (no pun intended). I had the urge to do one more BIG knife before the year was out and came up with this one. It ended up going together very quickly with only 25 hours in the whole project. But as always comments and criticism are welcome.

 

Thanks for looking!

That is a mean looking blade profile. Also, everything looks so "rough" the forge finish, the scale left on the guard, even the wood grain looks "dirty" and I love every little bit of it. This knife makes me think evil thoughts.
