    New Bushcrafter!


    ADVERTISEMENT
    So here is a small Bushcrafter that I just finished today. I wanted to see how long it would take me to do one from start to finish including Heat Treat. Well, it still needs some detail work done but I was able to do two in a day! This one might be going to a forum member, or it might go up for sale!









    Its 8 1/4" OAL with a 3 1/2" blade. Its my small Bushcrafter. It will be getting one of my universal sheaths in the pic above. What do you think?

    Man, it's about time one of you guys put something in here to look at, I mean, what gives, you both act like you guys just started a new forum or something and are all busy with the details . . . .
    Great looking knife once again Chris, so now we need one of those classy items from southern Ohio to complete the book ends of one from each of you.
    Great job & great craftsmanship once again.
    Be safe.
    p.s.: 1066vik, good to see ya' again . . . .

    Gnarly, that is walnut crotch. It is beautiful! Walnut is by far my favorite wood, there is just something classic about it plus, you can get curly, crotch, or burl..

    Got any of that Red Mallee Burl in 'crotch'?

    Prefer it neat; not so fond of curlyBushy.

    1066vik: Have you ever had the chance to handle one of KFU's 'forward swell' knives?
    You'd never BELIEVE how natural it feels in the hand.

    The young man KFU is onto something there.
    I dunno much about ergonomics,but the shape fits the natural shape of the human hand....no grip issues + less fatigue,when using it for a extended period.....absolutely PERFECT for 'user' knifes,IMO.

    I have not had the opportunity to handle one of his knives -- but am open to a learning opportunity if someone has a spare they're not using.
    OTOH, the few times I've shaped a set of scales, I tend to put the swell more forward than centered, so I can just imagine.
    Will definitely be keeping an eye out.
