A Little Knife Work
Seeing the recent knife by QkShooter has inspired me to show a couple of knives I recently finished up. The coffin dagger has ebony as the handle material. The antler handle was provided to me by the customer - a bit bleached, but really polished up very nicely. The green material is a malachite composite. Both blades were pre-made, but I did some extra work on them. The coffin dagger has engraving on its end.
I've been getting instruction from a local custom knifemaker.

Yeah, the honduran rosewood one was my favorite. I really hated to part with it. I think the coffin dagger will make for a nice little boot knife. I'm hoping to get the sheath made for it pretty soon. I'll be using some "banjo/guitar" stingray for it.
I also have some genuine india stag, enough to make a couple of knives. One will most likely be a skinner, while the other will probably be a bird/trout style of knife.
I like making the knives because it gives me something to throw in between making holsters. And then, of course, I get to make a sheath to go along with it.

Lovely knives Kevin - and yeah that rosewood handle is real sweet. The coffin too - just imagine that slipped into an inner sheeth in some boots - very handy!
Hope you had a good day and ''forced yourself'' to relax - just a bit!! Workaholic you!

That's some nice work. I like the sheath in the last picture (with the star). I'd retire if I had some talent!

You know some really talented knife makers TRY to make their own knife sheaths also.
Sadly, their knives LOOK MUCH BETTER than the sheaths that they attempt to make for them.
A truly smart knife maker (that is not a custom leather worker) would be much smarter having a professional leather crafter custom make their sheaths for him.
Nothing makes a great knife look worse than a piss poor sheath that has been made for it.
