Japfin, knife no 59
Japan meets Finland

As the headline explains, this is a try to make a knife that fusion the elegance of knifes from Japan and Finland.


The blog is about the one on top.

My knife making is my meditation and after I started forging blades also, it has gotten a new dimension.

This post is from the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/97466


Pictures:
1. The knife in the sheath.
2. Forging the blade from a old spring..
3. Figuring out the design
4. Shaping the handle.
5. Sewing the sheath.
6. MaFe has left the building again…

Hope this can inspire.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Very good, Mads…

How did you cut those small holes in the leather?
... how did you ‘stitch’ it up?

So COOL… never have seen sheaths like that before…

Thank you…
