These are actually hand specific?
um, no - it's the direction the metal is sitting in the pic.
Seax knife. 1095. Started out as a hammering techniques demo.
Ha! I had the same question! They look great sir!
I ask because we just got a Christmas gift that was one of those along with an item that is a handled piece of skinny flat metal slightly bent towards the end and a bowl with thin cloth on it. We had no idea what it was. It's a Danish sourdough bread making kit.
Primitive dining set made from shop scraps.
A couple more dining sets and a pan of bacon wrapped backstraps medallions
Finished a couple sheaths for a couple knives I’d made before Christmas. First time using water Buffalo and Chicago screws. What do you guys think?
Looks awsome, real professional. I showed it to my wife she loves the knife in the first picture. What brand , model please
Thank you! My wife, kids and I came up with the name Mythical Beast Forge and both of those are prototypes for my model called the Siren. I ended up making the new version with a little more narrow and recurved blade.
Got these 3 quenched, now they’re tempering in my wife’s oven
Theres a passaround thread for one of these MBF blades if anyone wants to test out the design and HT etc !
Just finished 2 of the 3, now I have to make sheaths. The knife with natural micarta is almost identical to the pass around blades. The only difference is the stock thickness and it will have a black scale on one side.
Not a leather worker by any stretch, but am definitely a “figure it out if you think you can” sort of person. So when a knife I ordered didn’t come with a sheath I knew I was gonna have to make one. I knew kydex would be a lot more easy, but the knife was begging for leather, and I had some laying around. I went with a Hudson Bay style sheath. Stitched with artificial sinew and currently wet forming it. All in all, definitely some stuff I would do differently next time, but I like it enough to wear it, so considering it a success. More pics later.
Finished these today, next come the pants. My wife claimed the hidden pin one after I gave her the steak knife.....they were put to use as soon as I finished sharpening them.
Wife wanted an accent wall.
