Arkansas Toothpick/Dagger

Recommended Posts

I've been busy working on other knives for some time but finally got around to getting this toothpick to the dry fit-up stage.  I had a hard time deciding on what type of guard this one needed.  (this is guard #3).  The handle is a nice piece of fossil walrus that was originally some type of Inuit  pick.  After removing both ends it had just enough material for this handle.  The fittings are all 416.

You have to do a rough ugly blade one of these days Gary,  just so we mortals can feel better about ourselves.   I like that guard also, fully rounded ones look off to me.    As always, you are shaming we mere mortals.   :)

Wild pattern on the blade and the handle is great.  Matter of fact, the whole thing is great.

I intentionally set this one aside for 48 hours.  Once going back to it I decided that the ricasso area was too long and took about 1/8" off of  it as well as doing some subtle changes to the shape of the ivory.  Here's what I ended up with:

Good call on both the ricasso and the ivory.  Subtle, but better!
