Here are the latest knives I made for some family. Zebrawood scales, nickel silver rivets, sanded to 320, three coats of brushed on Lacquer. I get the blanks from http://jantzsupply.com/cartease/item-detail.cfm?ID=SS712 These guys are great to deal with and have a great selection of product to make great gifts.
I have made a few knives and these are my best lot yet.
Enjoy

Very interesting. I looked at there web page and you have peaked my interest! How is the quality of the blade? I see you say their a pleasure to deal with. Do the blades come with the rivets that connect the handle or do you need to buy them seperate? I really thiink I might buy a set of these. Thx for the post.

Beautiful Knifes. Just curious how you got into this project line? I missed the class at our WC here and wondered if you could point me in the direction of some good tutorials, websites, etc. I poed around on the site you listed, but I don’t really know where to start with this one. Thanks on advance…

Ken-It depends what blades your order, some come as a kit with handle material, rivets and basic instructions. Some just come as blanks. Usually it is indicated what kind of rivets are needed if they are not included.

I didn’t mention that I epoxied the scales as well as riveted. Through trial and error I found that this epoxy works best http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=20012&cat=1,110,42965&ap=1

Patrick- To get started I would say order a simple kit and have at it. There are lots of knife making tutorial out there too to help.

Thanks for the comments.

Thx for the info I’ll look into that and order some blades and try the epoxy. Had some good reviews on Rockler. I have done some repairs with epoxy so I’m always on the look out for a good one.

Thx!
