Knives away to new homes

Recommended Posts

A few more knives away after final sharpening tomorrow. This is the safari knife that was ordered with the brass bolster and birdshead grip hande in walnut instead of the original patern handle in micarta or buff horn.

And some more field scalpels. Two have the belt sheath (one buff horn and the other in olivewood) and the third is a neck knife sheath.

I have refined the shape a little for the olivewood knife and this will njow be my patern as it sits a little more comfortably in hand.

Those field scalpels look like they'd be a joy to use, and I like what you've done with your mark on the sheaths.

They fit very nicely in the hand Alan and I use mine for everything from dressing rabbits to spltting plums, pears etc for the summer preserving. They are like a fixed pocket knife and have a multitude of uses.

I have been working on another EDC pattern for the owner of another forum and will emboss the  forum name  on the sheath and knife handle with a heatable stamp (while still having my mark on them abnd it will be in a similar styled sheath to the field scalpel I will make it for those not on the forum but it will not have the forum branding on it

I decided to make a more apropriate holder for the little olivewood knife that mother took a liking to so at her 90th birthday at the weekend I said I would get it sorted this week so this is what I came up with. I didn't have a large enough piece of olivewood but I think the contrast of the walnut is a better look anyway
This is what I did to make the little knife more available for her. It will be screwed onto one of her cupboard facings, be simple to retrieve and replace, while being secure in keeping.

The recess has to follow the curviture of the handle to get a good fit and have with enoug depth at the ase to give full support to the handle end

Very cool, and professional looking holder :D People should sell kitchen knives with something like that. The whole magnet strip on the wall doesn't look as warm, or homey as what you've got there.
