This is a knife I made for my Dad for Christmas. He really liked the knives I made before and asked me to make him one awhile back. I never got around to it until recently. I don’t have access to a woodshop at college so christmas break was a good time to work on it. The handle is a combination of antler and walnut and the sheath is a combination of walnut, maple, and leather. I finished it with danish oil and tung oil. It has a very nice feel to it and he loved it. He had asked me to make him a camping knife originally and this is what I made, but after I gave it to him he decided it was too nice to risk ruining it while camping so he told me I have to make him another less nicer one, haha.

Great job on the knife. It looks great! I wouldn’t want to use it camping either!

Keep up the good work, Chris.

That is really a nice looking knife. What did you make the blade from and where did you get the brass guard fot the transition to the wood?

Nice work, is that a laminated blade from brusletto or helle? Those scandinavians sure make sharp steel.

Thanks! The blade is from the maker Brusletto. The brass guard is a piece I cut out of a solid brass lock and shaped.

Hey Chris – knice knife!
I am a knifemaker, usually folders, and I appreciate your hard work and great selection of materials. Your sheath is also a knice addition. Certainly a keepsake.

Beautiful – keep up the great work man!
