That is beyond cool!
That’s too cool!
Some impressive work, gentlefolks. Happy I didn't have to look farther than the second page to find this thread...I haven't visited in a while.
Finally finished up the tiny axe:
My latest traditional style puukko: 125mm Puronvarsi blade shortened to 115mm, removed the brut de forge, slight reprofiling of the belly, polished to 800x then gray Scotch-Brite satin finish. Nickel silver bolster and end cap on a cocobolo handle polished to 1200x and linseed oil finish. The cocobolo will darken over the next few days to an even golden reddish brown.
Super Classy... Wow
@hawkhead another amazing beauty.
Beautiful. What do you do with all these nice knives you make, if you don't sell them?
Thank you fellow Beckerheads for your comments. A few were given as gifts to nephews, my Pastor has two, my best buddy has two and my wife has two. That still leaves me with many. I do use some for carving other knife handles and general chores. I will be exhibiting Nordic style knives to the local Scouts and giving a short talk on knifemaking. Since retiring eight years ago, I am very content making Nordic style knives and the puukko has become my favorite.
Gorgeous work, @hawkhead!
I personally think you should up your membership level to craftsman, and sell them. They would sell quickly.
"There it is!"
Completed last evening. Puukko: 115mm x 22mm blade with beveled spine and slight drop point. Black ash burl handle with brass bolsters and contrasting ebony.
Sick man, sick.
Truly another BEAUTY
quick and dirty "altoid tin" knives made from a 30 year old 10" "spring steel" craftsman plywood sawblade.
Thank you very much, Warrior and Xr6x.
