Hopes, dreams, and possible failures #KITH2016

Recommended Posts

Well... I have finished.

 

This piece has destroyed me on every level. It was a constant 1 step forward 3 steps back.

So, a name for it came to me last night. Normally I don't believe in naming a knife, but I hope that the recipient of this knife has more luck owning it than I have making it.

I named it "The Jinx".

I even managed to make a sheath...

BTW...

Thank you Alan for the sheath idea... cardboard and duct tape!

I like the whole thing Gabriel. I especially like the way the guard got finish at the handle junction. Overall I don't care much for guards, this one is nice. Make sure the wood is good and dry, vinegar will eat away at the metal. (Done that!)

Thanks guys!

 

Joshua... you put it just right ;)

 

I though since the steel is shovel, and style is coffin handle... why not throw some sugar skulls on it?

actually, it was the only duct tape I could find with skulls...
