I had this small piece of walnut sitting around the shop for years. Because of the fancy grain I kept it around and finally figured out what to do with it. I shaped the sheath then split it, hollowed it out then glued it back together. The brass with the ruby I saw on a Jim Bowie movie so I slipped that in. So hang on to those small pieces of scrap…you never know

Nice Job looks really smart. As far as hanging onto old pieces of scrap, I do , much to the bewilderment and sometimes embarrassment of my wife and sons. I am always bending down in the street picking up old pieces of metal that look unusual . Again when I buy things from people giving up on their businesses, I always delve through the old junk boxes they have their either selling for scrap junk or sitting ready to be thrown out. Cheapskate, hoarder, and even recently been called in the nicest way a magpie or similar I can’t quite remember the exact words. LOL anyway I do eventually find a use or help friends out by giving them some pieces they now badly need even though they were the ones frowning at me for stooping so lo as to rumble or rake through the trash left over at the end of an auction. I thought everyone did that So tell me am I just an old Scottish cheapskate?? LOL Alistair

Some of us recycled before recycling was cool…I made the knife out of an old car leaf spring.

Have your say...
