I ordered a couple knife blanks from WC a couple months ago just because they were on sale. I thought they would make perfect father’s day presents, so I planned on making my dad one, and one for Eric. Eric decided he would rather I make his for his dad, rather than him(well, I could make his later). So, this is the knife I made for his dad. The handle is sapele. It’s a skinner knife. This is my second attempt at leather work. The first time I laced it, I was putting the kife in and out, testing the fit and when I looked down, I realized it had cut through the last 4 laces, so I had to come up with a different plan. I thought maybe stitching it this way, rather than wrapping around like I did the other knife would keep it from being cut. After I was done I still wasn’t sure so I put a little peice of leather where the tip goes to keep it from cutting. Thanks for looking!
