    Spear Point "Parachute" Knife

    I just finished this knife and, as any proud Papa would I thought I'd share a pic.



    Nothing spectacular, AUS8 cryo treated steel, black canvas Micarta scales, spear point hollow grind, 5" blade, 9-5/8" OAL.

    I play at making knives. One day I'll I drop the $ on serious grinding and heat treating gear, but for now I buy treated blade blanks and just modify them.

    Utilitarian, no fancy-schmancy artsy details... I like it, too.

    Congrats on this one, looks like it's ready to cut some paracord.

    The last one I did was similar. Drop point and no finger cuts on the grip, with an acid wash finish. I gave it to a buddy before I got any pics though.

    It's a great way to wast time and feel like I actually accomplished something.

    I love my knives and they have been a part of me for half a century and I'm hear to tell you that's beautiful. Have you ever toyed with the idea making a 4 or 4 1/2in blade with slight 1 in recurve 9in over all with natural Micarta scales. Please show us some of the rest of the family I know there are others that will appreciate your fine work, love it.

    shadowwalker,
    I don't have the tooling to really make a knife from scratch. I love a nice recurve blade and would build one in a heart beat if I could find the blade blank.

    Here's a couple others I've done.

    That's pretty good work for someone just dinking around! Are you doing your own heat treat as well?

    That's a damn fine looking blade there, Sir.

    I like the spear point and the scales with the 'grippin' grooves'.

    I wish I had the equipment for heat treating. These are all "kit" knives. The blades are cut, ground and heat/cryo treated. They could be assembled as is when I get them, but I usually do some modification. Sometimes a little file work, most often I reshape the handle tang for a better grip. Then I polish, blast or acid wash for a finish. I've re profiled a few blades on some of the folders that I put together.

    You're working the steel, that's a talent in and of itself.

    I'll take one with a 5 1/2 inch blade, max allowed in Texas.
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.....well, I have others.
