My first attempt of making scales and using a knife blank
« on: December 31, 2018, 02:56:03 PM »
I hope you all don’t mind me posting a few picture of my very first attempt of a knife blank but I have no forge or any knowledge of making a blade from steel stock so I figured what about buying a cheap blank and see what comes out!
  What I did was order a few blanks and since I had some Scrap “Ziricote” that came from a guitar company near home here I  thought “What have I got to lose” so here go’s.
 This is the end result I have on my new I pad gizmo my boss gave me for work !

Now my next blade is a little Green River patch knife or little chopper.
It would look nice with either a Moose or Elk antler scales but not available in my hunting grounds lol so may have to be “Ziricote” also🔪

It's very addictive.  :biglaugh:
