Sheath and Knife Maker
- Dec 30, 2010
Got bored, and have been wanting to make an awl/reamer type of device for drilling smallish holes and poking, but wanted it to have some slight edge to it so I could use it for my firesteel. I got an idea today, well, a little bit ago, and ran with it. Here is the results. (In you face Nick.)
Handle end of a broken chainsaw file, with the tip ground at an angle to produce a sharp tip, and the handle of a spring loaded center punch with all the guts removed. The hole at the end of the punch was filed briefly to make it square shape, just small enough so that the file portion would not pass through all the way. It works, so I guess I am successful.
Very nice D!
