A few of my recent knife builds

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a person that has no arms but still uses a Knife? I have a friend with no arms and no legs but he still gets into the field to hunt. For hands he has those hooks. He processes venison while holding a regular knife with his hooks and the knife slides. So I created a knife he can use with his hooks. So if you know someone that uses hooks and they want a knife, give me a call and we see if we can make them a specialty knife.

This is a Craig Barr knife and is not for sale. These are hand forged by a true professional. His blades usually sell for over $100 and if he builds a knife like this he charges $250.

This is a Damascus blade made in the good old USA. The handle is a dyed and stabilized piece of Box Elder Burl. This is a really nice knife that is useful showpiece.

Here is a large boot knife. It is made in the USA and is very durable. The handles are Buckeye Burl. I left the ‘imperfections’ in the wood to give it a different look. This is a one-of-a-kind knife.

I finished this one today. It is a very sturdy knife that would make a good hunting knife. This one is one of my least expensive knives. But don’t let the lower price fool you. It’s a good knife.

Here is a selection of Boot Knives (Sgian Dubhs). I made them for bagpipe players as part of their uniform but I sell a lot of them as boot knives.

 

The knives with the heart in them are my ‘Lady Sgian Dubh’ line. Of course, some women want the bigger knife anyway.

Here is a ‘different’ project. As I wrote before, as part of their uniform bagpipers wear a boot knife called a Sgian Dubh. One thing I know about pipers is that they LOVE to drink beer. However, there’s never a bottle opener around when you need one. So I came up with this, a ‘Sgian Brew’. They wear it in their socks and it looks like a knife. But when the playing is done, the drinking has just begun!

Thanks to all. Positive feedback is always appreciated.

 

Tinder, what items might we trade this time. I was going to post a pic of your green handled knife but since it is gone, I didn’t do it. I really like that one.

I like the second one from the left with the green handle and metal bolster for the index finger.

Here is my most recent knife. This sucker is big! At just over 17 inches long and weighed to be front heavy, I think this can mow down some weeds. I hope to use this as a barter item with Leeheim. If he doesn’t want it, it’ll be open on a ‘first come - first serve) basis. Remember, I am VERY willing to barter knives for items. Tinder and I have bartered a few times. Jerry and I have to (but I think I got the better of the deal because he gave me some awesome wood with which to make knife handles). Ask if you want to barter. The worst that can happen is we can’t agree to a trade!

So, what do you think Leeheim? Can we work a deal?

I finished this about a week ago. This is a Craig Barr made blade. He makes extremely strong and expensive knives. This knife is not for sale as the blade was a gift to me. Were I to sell this one, the price would be $225 firm. It is a seriously nice knife!

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
