A man at work had a knife blade that his son in South Africa owned and gave to his younger brother here in Australia. Now the younge lad cherished this knife blade because of his love for his brother. The father took the blade and the younge boy (14) said where are you going with my knife, Father answered in a grufff deep voice
“I get it fixed”.
So I thought this needs a bit of special attention. After cleaning, polishing and sharpening the blade, I made a handle out of Western Australian curly Jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata) shaping it to siut the large hands of the father so when the son grows up it should suit the son. Sanded and sealed with two pack resin.
Then I had a thought that it needs more, but that is the next project upload.
Hope you enjoy.
