« Part 1: working with scraps Part 2 of Oyster knives series no next part

not sure if this link showed up but I tried pasting it from my Facebook page. If not, you can just go to the page. I will be adding more as I finish them.

I’ve been having fun with these knives. Recycling “trash” has it’s own rewards. I could probably do a better job and save a lot of time by buying steel stock or precut knife blades, but this is much more fun and challenging.

Hey, I like these ! That’s very fine work, now for scale, I’m guessing about a 4” handle ? or so ?
Don’t see any error there.

Thank you, and yes, they are all a little different in size, but for the most part 3.5”-4” on the handle and about 6” overall length.

You do exceptional work. I would probably lose a lot of blood making knives.

You have these down very well. I really like the short curved blade style.

The oysters might not like these, but I sure do. Very nice work.
