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!
