This is a collection of some of the other knives I have made. Some were good, a couple were not so good. But all were a learning experience. Here are the descriptions:

1. Combat Survivor blade with Cocobolo handles-The board I got the wood from is BEAUTIFUL.
2. Detail of a semi-skinner blade from Woodcraft with olivewood handles and red liners.( I didnt let the olivewood dry enough and it eventually warped away from the blade :(
3. Detail of Bearclaw blade with Osage Orange with Blue liners.
4. Collage of my first blade ever- Skinner from woodcraft with Bubinga.
5. Same blade as number 4 just of the whole thing.
6. Collage of blade number 1- Combat Survivor with Cocobolo.

Thanks for looking and feel free to comment and ask any question! :)

scotsman, Ohhhhh no I don’t grind the blades myself. I just get the premade blade blanks and put the wood handles on them. I have neither the experience nor the space and money to try grinding them myself but thank you anyway! :)

Beautiful work you have made there.
Simple and elegant.


I have one unfinished skinner here that I work on, with giraffebone handles.

You can see some of my knifes here:

These are beautiful, Mads. I have always wanted to try my hand at this, but I’m not sure that will ever be able to find the time. I’ll bet it is very rewarding to you and that you enjoy it very much. Nice work.

Mafe, I LOVE your knives man they look great! I have wanted to try puuko style knives for a while but I think I need a drill press to get the tang holes drilled properly. But yours look great man. You are going to post pictures of the giraffe bone finished right? haha. I would love to see it. That stuff is expensive and gorgeous.

Hi ho,
S2art, I will post my giraffe bone knife when done, that is a promise right now I have two important knifes to finish, one for my old friend through +20 years that I gave him for his 40 years birthday. And one for my sister that she got for her 40 years birthday, but she want’s to be part of the build. So this baby will need more waiting… No hurry I got quite a lot of knifes since it’s been a years long hobby. Just made for my GF’s boys this holyday, I will post these now.
You can make the knifes without a drillpress, just takes a steady hand and focus.
Do you make sheeths also?

Helluvawreck, yes it is revarding, and I acually started when I was really busy, to de stress my self, and I loved it, it needs plenty of focus, and so you become meditative.

Thank you for your kind words both even this is not my post…
Best thoughts,
Mads

Hey thats cool mafe. I just finished 2 for a couple of friends yesterday too. One was another bear claw like yours in lignum vitae and another was a tanto with Ambrosia maple. They were nice.

I think my problem is the steady hand part. haha. I practiced a lot but I always moved the drill just a little and got it off track. Hey how is giraffe bone to work? I have never done a knife in any kind of bone before

It is really nice to work in, like a hard wood or horn. I like it.
I know the problem with the steady hand.
