Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Last February on a visit to the Historic Arkansas Museum (They have a great knife exhibit!) inspiration hit me. After seeing this knife: I decided that I needed to make an Arkansas Toothpick my self. Later that month I forged it out: And I have been working on it here and there ever since. I originally was going to do a fluted walnut handle, but when I stuck the piece of stag that is now the handle up next to the blade I decided to change direction. Here it is before shaping the guard: It has progressed a bit since this last photo, but I am without a camera at the moment. I am really liking how this one is turning out so far!
