Lag knife DIY
This post comes from the Making an ancient bucket MaFe #3: Scandinavian lag knife DIY
Our dear Mike (Stefang), started a ‘master class here on LJ, a blog on how to make a traditional Nordic bucket, and part of this class was ‘making a lag knife’. Thank you Mike!
As always I had to do things my way… So here is the lag knife, with the knife mounted the traditional Scandinavian way.
You can read about the technique it in the blog.
1. The lag knife.
2. Making the hole for the tang.
3. Beating the blade in.
5. Knife sheath shaped as a mushroom.
6. This you can see in the blog.
Hope this can be to some inspiration, first to take a look at the blog, and then perhaps to make a lag knife, even I’m aware this is a very specialized tool, but the technique can be used for other knifes.
And here is one for Patron:
For you David!
