Here is a knife and fire striker I crafted for a friend in exchange for leatherwork. I’ll be delivering them to their new owner this weekend. I used mesquite burl for the handles finished in Danish oil.

Enjoy!

Very nice…..I finished one in Wenge and have two more waiting to finish. They will be gifts. What did you think that blade blank?

Thank you!

To answer your question, I like these small skinner blade blanks from wood-craft-store. I picked up a few awhile back when they were on sale for about half off. I have noticed that the grinds on some of them are a little off when compared to the opposite side. The one used for this knife was one of the better ones.

Thank you. Out of all of the knives I put handles on this is my favorite.

I’m sure both will be put to good use. Their new owner was very excited to receive them this morning. The best part of making stuff is to see someone else happy to get it.
