A beer bottle opener
A longer tang
A shorter blade
A higher grind line
A 3mm thick blade
Filework on the spine
So the first thing to do is to produce a drawing, then a simple working model. I tend to use thin ply and/or thin cardboard to make those simple models. Here is the first drawing, along with my Rustic Oak.
|First drawing and my own Rustic Oak|
Here are a couple of pictures of the working model. At this stage it's the same size as the original, but with the bottle opening tang.

After a few discussions, I drew the revised version and Emailed it to my client for approval (or otherwise!)
