I thought I would post some pictures of some of my custom made carving knives. These are mostly made out of Deer and Moose Antler (some I have carved faces into others I have used my Laser to Engrave them.) What I’ve used on a lot of them are Xacto-Knife balde holders that I have cut the shafts off of and inserted them into my handles. This is excellent because you can remove the blades and replace them with any type of Xacto Blade. So if one gets dull just replace it.
The Celtic Cross is something I just finished out of Moose Antler. It’s not a knife..:)
I’ve also posted a pic of a Mini-Lathe that I am restoring. It’s made by the VENDALL Machine Company although I have not been able to find any information at all on the manufacturer. It was in aweful shape when I got it. It looks a whole lot better now.
These are all Light Duty Knives. I have several sets of the high end store bought carving tools but I use these for detail work etc. I also do a lot of Power Carving, mostly to do the rough outs with.
