This is a custom version of my Raven folder. It sports a 3″ blued W1 blade with bone inserts and brass bolsters. Folders are a lot of work, but I really liked the way this one came out!
Tried my hand at forging out a feather, came out pretty well and I learned a few things…
This is a larger custom version of my Lynx pattern hunting knife. This version sports a 4.5″ blued w1 steel blade (differential temper) with a blued steel guard and canvas micarta handle. The sheath for this is kydex with nylon strapping and is set up for horizontal or vertical carry. …
I decided to try my hand at a traditional flint striker, this one will go in my personal fire kit——–but I definitely will make more of these. It is forged from w1 steel with an OAL of about 3″, it sparks very well!
This is my take on a stripped down, no nonsense bushcraft and survival knife. It features a differentially tempered 5″ W1 blade, in broken-back seax style, with a 550 paracord wrap. The sheath is laminated black leather with a soft buckskin outer.
I think I’ll call this the Lynx, because it is a compact but elegant and capable hunter—–like its namesake… This is mirror finished W1 with a copper and wood handle, 7.75″ OAL with a 3.5″ blade.
This was an experiment I did from 1″ black iron pipe.
I call this one the Bush Dog and it is my take on an outdoor utility knife. This features a rust blued W1 blade with a pheasant wood and pure copper handle. Blade length is 5″ with an OAL of 9.5″.
