This is my first upload to LJ, so i thought i would make it about one of my early projects.
Some years ago i was a leader at a scout course about making things yourself. Everything from hammocks, mugs, spoons and knives. It was meant as an inspiration for the younger leaders to go out and make stuff like it with their own groups..
Since i’m a teacher i figured while i taught the kids, i would make one of everything for myself. Teaching by example if you will..
Since this was the first time i had ever made a knife, it’s quite rough. I like working with wood way more than metal, but a good knife is must-have so i gave it a go..
I don’t remember the type of wood, but the blade i premade steel (lapplander 95 if i remember correctly) and the top part and the pins are brass..
Wish i had pictures of all the great ones the kids did :)
