Broom handle fighter and forged draw knife
« on: March 10, 2020, 01:18:29 PM »
 Thought you guys might enjoy a few pics of a couple pieces I finished recently.

Broom handle 52100 drop point fighter. This one is lightweight with a full distal taper. File work on the spine and a dark etch. Redwood burl scales with a food many coats of tru oil. Sheath for this one is in the works.

Draw knife is differentially heat treated 1084 steel. Bowyers style with a straight blade and convex cutting edge. Knife scale style handles in laminated paduak and brass pins. These cut like no other I have seen.

Nice work
In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities. In the expert's there are few...So the most difficult thing is always to keep your beginner's mind...This is also the real secret of the arts: always be a beginner.  Shunryu Suzuki
