I guess you could call this my first proper project :D
I have always wanted to carve a wooden knife one day. I found some nice sized and shaped branches, let them dry out for a few weeks, pulled off the bark and got to it.
It may not be the sharpest of things, but it would be handy as a camping or fishing tool. I added the serrations to make it easier to saw into things, maybe meat, or even plant material. This wood is surprisingly tough, but i don’t know what the name of it is xD
I used vegetable oil to seal it instead of industrial sealant/finish, so it is safe to use with food.
I made a notch at the bottom and drilled out a hole to later attach a lanyard, probably a leather string or para-cord..
