2022 TITH Ideas and inspiration

I took a class with @Matthew Parkinson a few years ago. Part of the project was a leather-wrapped handle. He had this neat little head knife he made from a scrap piece of Damascus. I don't have a close-up pic of the head knife, but to give you an idea of the size and how it was used, here he is skiving the leather down with it.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

My inspiration was squashed when my wife had fractured and dislocated her arm this summer.   I did manage to make a KIRIDASHI that will have cubic twist handle.  Hopefully a worthy submission and I'm not too late to participate.

Thanks Brian.   I'm not sure it lives up to the quality of work other's are putting out this year.   Anyways the twist is done.   Just need to sand out some defects and then quench.20220909_090700.jpg

Not that this matters at all, but still I beg to differ. That is really cool.

Yes.  Yes it is.  I've used that twist on a few things, but polished like that it adds a nice Bladerunner-type futuristic look.

Well I appreciate the compliments.   I quenched and tempered the fancy exacto knife and tested it's function as a tool by scoring sheet rock for the bathroom.  I will clean it up and call it done.
