Carving knife handle’n sheath
the shaves are wood…

Another gift from my friend Flemming is this old beautiful carving knife.
Curved blade, flexible like a spring.
But impossible to use without getting your hands in trouble.
Also it needed a way to stay sharp and not make trouble when transported.
So I got the idea of making a combination between a sheath and a handle.


Pictures:
1. Ready for some carving.
2. Sheath now.
3. I just love that shark logo.
4. As you can see sharp edges.
5. Playing with leather.
6. Stitching done.

Thank you Flemming.

Hope this can inspire to bring life to old tools,

Best thoughts,

You had to have been a wonderful architect. Your ideas are always eloquent but at the same time examples of absolute simplicity.

And what are you going to do in the afternoon? :D

I still have your asian-style marking knife on my to-do list and maybe the sheet-handle will go together well with it.
Thanks a lot for sharing all your ideas and projects!

It is a shoemaker knife. I have one to from when i learned to be a shoemaker last year.
But maby it is also fine for carving.

Nice to see you back Mads. That trip to Turkey must have worn you down.
Nice knife by the way.

Thank you Brinth, do you know if they have a kind of handle for them?
I love this about LJ, info seems to arrive like from the sky.
Think it will still stay in my carving tools, also got a straight version from my friend.
Will see if I can find some more info now.

Madts, Turkey was wonderful but I got a pneumonia that will not go away…
Hope to be up and running soon.

No shoemakers only have a leather handle for them like the one you have. If there was a handle it were often to big for the job when you “skærfer læderet” (gøres primært ved tåkappen og hælkappen)

Læderiet in Aarhus are selling the stright version. (skomagerknive) (57 kr)
Sønderborg læderhandel are selling: stright, right curved and left curved knifes. (Tina skomagerknive) (203 kr. stk. + moms)

You can find more info in the book: “håndsyede herresko”
