Well, I made my daughters birthday yesterday. She was very happy with the knife I made for her. She took it along to college.
I used pallet wood for the handle, and God only knows what wood this is. I used an old sawzall for the blade, and is that stuff hard. I used 3/16 brass rods, this is were most of the money went. And I glued it together with Elmer’s epoxy.
The name tag, or whatever you want to call it, is a “waterslide decal” (third picture). I just got these in over the weekend, and this is the first project I am using it on. I like it. It’s better than a branding iron, because I can change it every time depending on what project it is for.
Please notice my signature nail hole. If I use pallet wood, I will show a nail hole too!
Sharpening the knife was a challange. I had to make a jig for it.
I drilled the holes. Again, this steel is very hard, I had to be careful with my drill bit.
Be good. Pabull.
