Just in time for Christmas, this kitchen melee helper is made out of a coil spring, maple wood and deer antler. This is my first kitchen knife, and I had some interesting learning curves with it, particularly on the handle. Originally it was supposed to have brass antler brass, but I only had one chance to make the antler piece work, and well some power tools got away with me and successfully changed my handle design. The length of the blade is 4'' and the handle is 4 1/4''.

Looks good!  The finish on the blade is a major leap forward!

Very nice. Alan said it well. I'll just add that, starting from a coil spring to that finish really shows your forging skills and that you know when enough hitting it is enough.

Very nice work, indeed.

Thank you. Most of my inspiration and motivation for perfection comes from looking at everyone else's work here, it's all pretty spectacular, real art.

Ya, power tools do have a habit of getting away from you.  That's why I like to use hand tools on the handle.  That said that should be a real nice knife in the kitchen.

Brilliant. That's just a great design, well executed. Now make 5 more - the shaping and finishing will get easier and better each time, you'll have $300 or so worth of stock, and you'll acquire the skills to make your next batch worth twice that. Great job...
