Some New Pieces...

In between commissions, I've been trying to finish up some smaller pieces before Christmas. The first two were made as a one heat point forging demo. 5"ish blades in 1095, mounted in bog oak, copper and bone:

Next is a simple wee viking knife in 1095 and carved wild olive wood with a bog oak bolster:

And finally a simple edc in 1095, bog oak, copper and carved antler:

I am always happy when you post new work Jake :). One day, when I'll get a break of kitchen knives commissions, I want to try a sgian dubh with a carved handle just like those you make, just to fully appreciate the work behind them. I just like your work a lot...

Wonderful work Jake, I especially like the first two. Great carving. That Dark look really works.

Good all round Jake but I like the 2nd and the last best.

Jake, they are all great! My personal choice for the one I liked the most is the last one!! Great work!!5f7.jpg

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft
