My first more professional knife project.
After seeing all the kinds of knives here I got so hyped on doing myself a more professional knife. I wanted to do it better in both crafting it and making the final product look like the ones here.
This will however be my third knife I've completely finished with polishing, sheath and all.
However, I don't have the tools such as stationary drill, big grinder etc.
Here's what I have.
But the only problem I have had so far when trying to craft knives is to fit the blade in the handle. I don't have access to a welder or similar to heat it up and burn it in after drilling. So I just use my files to fit it, which is pretty time consuming. Got any tips on what I can do instead?
I'm a fan of oddities and smaller knives aren't that normal. It took me some years to finally find a blade this small(4.3cm) and in damascus.
And here's what I have to choose from. I'd like to get the two pieces furthest to the left and then the black pieces on the right identified. I got them all these throughout the years as gifts and similar.
I like brighter wood but I've always wanted to use the piece furthest to the left. Opinions?
This is what I had in mind. Since the blade is so tiny a smaller handle fits better. And since I have plans on selling it I guess females would like it the most because of their smaller hands.
Should I make a totally different and larger handle, perhaps making it into a discrete decorative knife shaped sort of like a lipstick?
As for the sheaths I like slim and no beltclips. So at the end of the handle you simply tie the leatherstring or similar to the belt instead. But I'm not too sure.. The sheaths is the part that I have the most problem with anyway, I will gladly take ideas for something else.
Am I having too high hopes?
Also, this won't be done in a week or so. A bit longer than that..
