I made this carving knife yesterday and I like the feel and cut from this knife. The handle is some figured walnut from a scrap box. Thanks for looking.

Lew,
The blades is from a floor scraper blade from the big box stores. I ground it down to the final shape making sure not to over heat the blade. The metal in the scraper blades are great for carving blades and hold a nice edge.

Nice job Mike. I have some of those scrapper blades also but I haven’t
found the time to make a knife yet.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks for all the comments.

Wayne—I am using the Personna 8” blades . They come in a 5 pack so you will have plenty of blades that you can make.
