Elk handled hand-forged knife
« on: October 13, 2018, 01:52:12 PM »
Thought I'd share a knife I just finished for a client. It has a hand-forged 01 tool steel blade and an elk antler handle with a ram's horn guard. I also did the hand tooling on the leather sheath.
Been forging for over 17 years.

First time posting here, so I hope my attachments show up.

Both the knife and the sheath look great.

Good looking knife! Sheath is very nice too. 17 years is a lot of beating and banging.  :biglaugh:

Beautiful work.  The horn guard is a cool touch but grinding the head of your rivet into an acorn shape to go with the oak motif is a really cool touch.
