A knife for a friend
« on: April 18, 2018, 02:58:04 pm »
Got this one done today, taking it to work and giving it to a co-worker I like.

One of the ones I made from a brick saw blade.

A style I like, good butcher knife, no belly for skinning like many styles but better for boning.

Wood is fairly plain Old World/English Walnut with some staining.    Linseed oil finish.

Blade was given a patina with non-iodized salt and vinegar to help prevent rusting.
