Hunting knife

Recommended Posts

This is a hunting knife I made from a piece of spring steel from the railroad scrap pile. I made a test knife from it before hand and it performed amazing. The blade is 5.5 inches with a 5 inch handle. The handle is made from bocote. This was my first attempt at soldering a gaurd a bit rough compared to some of the great work on this site, but I am happy with it. The video shows a little bit of the abuse the test knife got. Sorry about the video editing my teenage daughter put it together.

Those spring clips are great stuff!  One of the few easy sources of 9260, my favorite steel for hard work knives.  As for the soldering, the key is to have a gap-free fit before adding solder.  Easier said than done, of course. ;)
