Great looking knike and sheath. Did you manufacture the blade, also?

Wells, good looking knife, but that’s my question too, where / how did you get the blade. Did you make it yourself?

I made the blade from a circular saw blade. I cut it out with a composite blade on a 7” grinder, then finished it on a grinding wheel.

Sorry, Dennis. Being new here I don’t know the protocol yet. Well, I told you how I made the blade. I fashioned the handle from red oak, and used two-ton epoxy to secure it. The copper is an end cap for a 3/4” line, shortened with a hack saw. The tine on the blade extends nearly the length of the handle. In the future, I will make the tine longer and put a hole in it for a leather strap.

Have your say...
