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.   :)
