Deer Jawbones!!

We made a deer jawbone knife two years ago.  We had a lot of response to it and we came across another one and low and behold as soon as we found the bone a local artist who had wanted the one we made before showed up asking about one.  We let her know that as it just so happens we had a jaw bone and now it is ready to go help her in her artistic pursuits.   It is made of 1095 steel and sinew.

Cub scouts!

We just had a pack of Webelo scouts come over for a knife making demo.  We showed them our operation and Tom made a smiths knife in about a half an hour to show them some of the basics of smithing.  It was pretty cool being able to share what we do with scouts.  I was a scout myself and we never had any field trips like that that I can remember.   There may be other packs that want to come see us in the future.  It is pretty cool being a local cultural resource.

Sheaths of Wood.

I made another Kuhkri sheath recently for my friend Pat who had a great old military Kuhkri with out a sheath.  It turned out all right.   Today I had a lady come in who had just bough a very nice Shun 7 inch chef knife and she wanted a protective sheath. She had seen us at Love Local fest and thought we could help.  I had been wanting to try making one like I had seen before on Japanese chef knives with a locking pin that keeps the knife from falling out.  I decided to give it a try.  It was a lot of work and not something I think I want to make a lot of but here  it is, my first effort. Apologies to Shun for my quick and dirty mock up I did not want to mess up her brand new knife so after a quick trace I gave it back.  It is made of paduk with an iron wood spacer. Once I get a smaller drill bit the brass pin will be tied to the sheath so it does not get lost.

Here is a picture of our Large Bush craft next to our small bushcraft and our drop tip skinner for comparison.  We had sold out of those by the time I got to the show.  It is a really nice knife that always sells fast. 20171112_085321

Last but not least our Bird and Trout knives on the far right and to the left of them knives made from 100 year old plus files.  They are nice small game and utility knives.
