My father joked with me a while back about how I make all those knives and have never given him one. Little did he know I had already started a knife for him. This is the result. The steel is from an old file and its cutting edge is 2.5 inches. The handle is a white tail antler tip with cotton cord wrappings. Everything is sealed up with orange flake shellac (wonderful stuff). I made a very basic sheath from some scrap leather to finish it up. This is the style of knife that really suits my dad. Rough with a tribal feel to it. He was totally surprized. These simple knives are alot of fun to make and they are soo useful.
Thanks for looking.
