One problem with being a knifemaker, is that it can be difficult to keep a knife for yourself! So those two, I am going to keep. But, having said that, anyone who would like one of those know where toask!
I only got as far as making the blades at the moment. I had abdominal surgery last Friday, and can't do too much for a while, so I thought I'd just show the blades for now.
Both blades are about 8" long with cutting edges about 4" long. The top one came about as a fixed blade version of the folder I made for Sticks65, over on Planet Bushcraft, when he thought that, with a longer blade than the folder, it might make a very good fixed blade for Bushcraft.
The bottom blade is undeniably Nessmuk in shape! I wanted a slightly more flattened curve to the blade, but keeping the Nessie's general shape. I think I have succeeded quite well in this.
Both are going to have a pewter bolster, hence the two holes nearer the cutting edge. The holes are necessary for anchoring the pewter in place on the blades. I think they are both going to have horn handle just like the folder I made for Sticks65, hence the many small pin holes.
When I get around to finishing the knives and make the pewter bolsters I'll take some pictures of the process and post them, probably as a short tuturial.
