This was a quick little project inspired by Mads ( LJ: MAFE). I saw his knife and I looked at the sad knife I have been using for 60 years and figured I’d better dress it up too. I found this old knife down by the river when I was a kid and have used it ever since in my tackle box and now in my shop. I’m thinking someone threw it away because one of the blades was broken off. I have lots of new knives but this one has a sentimental value and I use it for everything. It had one handle off of it when I decided to make some new ones.
The little handles are made from curly maple and finished with clear lacquer. The way I use it, the blade will get a workout, but it will have nice handles!
