  • New mini Knife

    The last of my Pfeil steel stock was used to make this knife, the handle is crotch wood from a Black Ash, finished with beeswax. I also after I took the pictures polished up the blade a bit more, it is very sharp and has some flex to it so I don't think it will be allowed near any real hard wood. I plan to list it for sale on Etsy, I also talked to my uncle and found a place that I can order O-1 tool steel from in the size i want to make more of these little knives.

    Let me know what you all think of it, also the piece of Ash has some wormholes chewed through it.

              That's a sweet looking knife Carl. How does it feel in the hand?

              I've been carving more and more using/holding tools like a pen, and it looks the perfect blade shape for detailing.

                  Thanks for all the compliments, bob it is very comfortable for me and if you do a lot of writing with a pen or pencil it's about the same comfort level you just push a little hard and it could cut your finger off .

                  I was testing it out on some detail work on a whimsical barkhouse and another elfs details.

                          I am ordering some 1/16 o1 to make some knives with IF i ever get off my furry backside and assemble my small forge. I am currently using Murphy carbon steel blanks for there industrial knife it seems to be much better steel than the standard Murphy carving knives that i have owned. I also make carving knives from opinels. Just shape sharpen and use

                            I know and can see clearly exactly what, I want to carve.
                            But on the long journey from my head through my arms,
                            So much is lost before it gets to my fingers and tools
                            .
                            I have the opposite problem my hands know what to do i just have to keep my brain shut off ( never buy used 3rd party brains at the flee market it's just not worth the savings )
