I've been a little lax - new knives

The orignial plan was that each time I finished a new knife I would post a picture and the stats here. I've been lax.

I managed to post the stats for the LS1 kitchen knife in December, but didn't post good pictures of the two custom letter openers that I made for BDoodles. And didn't write down the dimensions so I can't post them.



Materials for letter opener BDoodles 1: Deer antler blade, Ebony and Copper Bolster, Deer antler handle (provided by the customer) engraved L.T. on crown of handle.



Materials for letter opener BDoodles 2: hammered Sterling silver blade, ebony and nickle silver bolster, deer antler handle (provided by customer), engraved S.G.



After those, I finished up my first knife from an old file and posted some pictures, but again forgot to get the dimensions but at least I mentioned the materials, but again:

F1: Given to my dad for Christmas, Blade: File steel, Guard: Copper, Handle: Kingwood, with mosaic pin.



Then, I finished up three more:
AR33: Scapel: 1 3/4" O1 steel blade, 6 3/8" overall, Ebony handle, mosaic pin, brass lined thong hole.



AR34: Drop point hunter: 4 3/8" 1095 high carbon steel blade, 9 3/4" overall, wrought iron (1800's grain silo) guard and pommel, olivewood handle, brass pins, and an onyx bead to cap off the pommel. I did make a sheath for this one too.



And finally (for now) I forgot to post the stats for the kitchen chopper, which I've talked about a lot...

AR35: Custom Kitchen Chopper: Blade: 7 5/8" 1084fg High carbon plus vanadium blade. Coccobolo handle with brass tubing accents. And just in case you didn't see it before, here it is again.


That should have me caught up until I finish the next set....

Hmm, typo the first time...
I'll try to stay away from the hard liquor starcake, but I'm almost out of wine :) And I'll look forward to that financial upswing too!
Glad you like the knives also,
A
