    Well. Maybe. I wanted to post this project because. The handle is unique and the sheath was made eons ago. 9-10 oz. (too thick for my tastes). Has loop and closure.

    oh. something else. I have had an itch to make a knife from a straight razor. Just won a bid for one. Going to make according to Rick (little shavers) plans. I am sure that he will be looking down from heaven to help me.

      A "sharp" looking knife and a very handsome and sturdy looking sheath!

        Nice looking knife and sheath ;.... l presume it's a carving knife , but resembles a "patch" knife that is similar to the ones used by muzzleloaders for cutting the patch at the muzzle of their rifles while loading.

          I've made three using Rick's plans, gave two away, kept one, very pleased with it.

            Joe,

            What blade profile did you use? I haven't decided for mine. Leaning toward a straight across and not upswept.

                Another good looking knife and sheath! I agree on the thickness of the sheath though. More a thickness for a belt knife. Unless you are planning on carrying your carver on the belt.

                  Thanks for the pics. I am thinking about a blade like the one in the pic that I posted.

                  Also, I am thinking about how I will set it into a handle.

                    Exactly. Plan that I used was for hunting knife. I sized it down for a wood carving knife. I like the other ones that I recently posted much better. 5-6 oz. and more for wood carving knives.

                      You never know when you might need a carving knife. Do you wear it when you walk into Walmart?

                        I like the profile in the second photo. It is the 4th from the left. I am leaning in that direction. I also like the handle. How did you set the tang into the handle? Did you use the full length of the tang?

                          I used two scales, worked the area where that tang would fix, drill a hole through the one hole in the full-length tang, used a brass pin, stuck it together with five minute epoxy. The only caution I would offer, just be careful when shaping the blade. I didn't anneal, harden or temper, I just went with the blade a I recieved & it will cut
