Over the winter I picked up a new hobby…the first one that started it is the one with the maple handle (looks like a mini butchers knife). It is a vintage J. Russell & Co. Green River Works blade…the old handle was just crapped out. The second one is a vintage Remington blade…I’m not sure exactly what wood the handle is, just some scrap that I came across. Both have a few mistakes…always learning along the way. I used an end piece from a vintage silver plated spoon for the guard…I think next time I may attach it the other way around with the larger portion on the top. I’ve left both blades clean, but still showing their age…I like the rustic look. I’ll find more along the way and post them when I’m done…hope you like them!
