I offered to make a knife as a prize for a turkey contest so I started it today. This will be a drop point blade. I am using a saw blade. Stamped into the blade was "Made in Norway" so I feel good about the steel it made from.

 -

 -

After roughing out the blade, I softened the handle so I can drill holes for the brass pins.

 -

Then I cleaned up the edges and polished the blade.

 -

After sharpening the blade, I drilled the pin holes.

 -

For the handle, I am thinking of using walnut and antler or bone.

For the knife handle, I will use antler and walnut. I cut apart a small rack to make the sides.

 -

I used J.B. weld epoxy to attach the antler to the walnut sides and then drilled the holes for the brass pins.

 -

I also use J.B. weld to attach the sides to the tang and in the pin holes. The pins are a tight fit that get pounded together.

 -

 -

The sides are over sized and will be sanded to shape after the epoxy sets.

Pruning saw, if I'm not mistaken.

Agree with all of the above - very nice indeed.

I'm new to this, How did you cut the blade out??

It looks great and I'd like to give it a try.
