Christmas gifts. Fishing knives


Recommended Posts

I made a 600-ish layer billet for a kitchen knife (wip in one of the pics), had a chunk left over. 4” x 2” x ~3/8”. 

 

My lovely wife suggested I make her dad a fishing knife for Christmas. Her dad, and all 3 brothers are avid fishers. I decided I’d challenge myself, and stretched that billet to 4 knives. One for each. 

 

 Because I forged nearly to completion of shape, and the high layer count, the pattern is REALLY squished in there. 

 

Handles are canvas micarta, beded fully with epoxy. I cut a small channel in the inside perimeter of the scales and filled it with epoxy. Idea being kinda like an o-ring to ensure I get a good seal. Sanded up to 400 grit, added single direction checkering lines for grip. 

Cutlery pins, heads ground a lot thinner so they stand up less. Then each persons initials stamped on the head of the pin.
