Here are two little flint knives I finished yesterday…sorry they are only half woodworking…hope I’m not breaking the rules. But these little knife handles are what got me started in my sawdust addiction!
The stones are knapped using ancient techniques…not power tools…then joined to the handle with 5 min Epoxy…then the joint is wrapped with deer rawhide for that rustic look. The finish is simple wax.
first knife is made of Cobden chert (IL) hafted to stabilized Box Elder Burl
second is Knife River Flint (ND) hafted to Maple Burl
Thanks for looking!
