Christmas Knife Exchange??

Recommended Posts

What do you feels forum members think of doing a small knife exchange. I know most of us have zero extra time, so I am thinking the knife would be a neck knife kind of size in whatever style normally make them. And then have the drawing in early December something. kind of late notice, but I personally am totally up to doing this, anyone else?

I like the idea. It's basically a KITH (knife in the hat). This forum has done it for the past few years.

That would be pretty cool! Although does it have to be a knife that goes around the neck, or can it be a tiny belt knife?

Sounds fun- I'm in :)

 

Speaking of KITH though, when is the subject for next years knife revealed?

Is it revealed or decided by everyone? I think a few of the suggestions were: Eating set (fork and knife), Friction folder knife, and kitchen knife. It seems like there is a practical/culinary trend to it...

To deviate from the standard KITH, we could do it like this...

 

no sign-up, just an announcement that there will be an exchange on December 1 (or the 7th or the 14th or whatever)

 

Make a necker if you want to participate.

 

On the date, run a list for 24 hours (or 48 hours or a week) and only throw your name in if you have a knife ready to go.

 

Do the swap.

 

Kinda like a Christmas/Hanukkah/Winter Solstice/{insert your own} party.

So... would a blacksmith knife work?

Since I don't have much shop time until the next year and have orders to fill, I would be oriented on the blacksmith knife as well. Since Timothy said, early on, "creativity is your limit"... I'll hold on to that. Also, for the next KITH I would be very happy if it could be an axe... I make kitchen stuff quite consistently, so it would be a nice digression...

 

I am in, if the deadline is atound the 10th, the 14th I will visit my family in Italy and I won't be able to ship the knife...

How did I miss this?

This looks like fun, I can make some time to put together a small knife.

So Count me in for a neck knife.

I might have some nice Damascus leftovers to play with.

Cool! Having the deadline on December 1st should be plenty of time. I can post a thread 2 weeks before so people can post pictures of the knives that they completed. Is that okay?

Yes, that would work perfectly for me too. I always need a couple more weeks...

Pin it in the KITH thread as CKITH 2016?

So how about the theme being "something small" like 2" blade or so? I love making small knives, miniatures and folders... anyone have any other idea or any twist to include?

I don't think that something like this should have a twist to it, just a small fixed blade knife that is about 2 inches and a sheath if the maker has the time. It could be anything from a wide skinner to a narrow utility knife. Use materials that you are comfortable with, or you can use this as an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone.
