Newest EDC to leave the bench!


Recommended Posts

Well a long time back I had a buddy ask me for a knife, he didn’t care about dimensions or design he gave me total creative freedom with it. Being a very green bladesmith I went nice, simple and small. So I made this little guy out of a Willys Jeep leaf spring (save the blasphemy remarks for after) with a coffee petina and oak handle. The Jeep had been totally scrapped and I bough a couple sets of spring from the owner ($40 is a damn good deal). The kydex sheath I also did myself using a heat gun and gardening knee pad. Petina turned out less even than I had wanted but that’s what I get for not hand sanding enough. I enjoyed the project so much I gave it to him for free on the condition he come back and buy a knife another time haha. Let me know what you think!

Nice little knife. I would be a little concerned that the finger choil would make your index finger slide up onto the blade during use.

In the future I would definitely take that into account, with this knife I wasn't too concerned about it since your pinky actually rests on the back end of the knife. I probably wont ever make one this small again, but dually noted. I may follow this post up with an improved version, maybe an integral guard.
