On suggestion from the, "Show me your knife" thread, I thought it might be fun for all to start a build thread on knives. Here we go. What a wonderful way to express beauty, sculpt and improvisation in an artform that has practical uses once complete! I Found a few scraps and ideas started flying. For my first attempt, I found an old mower blade, (very hard steel), a copper gas pipe, a brass welding rod, brass bolt and some Eucalyptus deadwood. I Finished off the knife and hopefully did it justice with the 650D and 18-55kit outside in the twilight. Going to start another one soon. I think I need practice. Already I see ways I could have done it better.
