A Project

I convinced Abe Elias of Diving Sparrow Knife Works to fire up his forge and work on some things he hadn't worked on in a while including a couple of crooked knives. I received them yesterday ready for handles and will now take the page from Ellsworth Jaeger's book as a guide.

I'll take some pictures of the blades as received and then I'll put together a tutorial as I put the knife together and sharpen it that first time.

Maybe I can find a suitable branch in the woods this coming weekend...

Thanks for reading,

They're hard to get hold of so I understand getting them forged.
I hope they work out how you hope. As far as I can tell, when combined with an axe and knife they make part of a great tool chest.
