rugged-rustic knives
« on: December 26, 2016, 06:13:53 AM »
last night i sent a photo via the cell phone to and old aquaintence of mine.
it was of a number of knives i've made. i asked what he thought of the and i could hear him
searching for words to describe them so he choked uo words like rugged and rustic oh then he
commented on the finish cause they have a brushed satin finish. he being partial i assume to stainless
mirror finish knives, i explained that many knives today have that finish and darned spendy ones at that.
some people don't get it. NOt all KNIVES are STAINLESS' MIRROR FINISHED

Amen brother! As a beginner i look forward to not using stainless at all or very little. I appreciate a blade with texture , color ,  character.

You've been threatening to post pictures for several years now (another forum).  Still waiting.

That photo data is missing a closed box on the IMG at the front.  Maybe something else too.

Yes, sir. It was just a misplaced bracket "[".

Nice work. I especially like the middle knife. Is that curly maple?

yes it is thank you, over the new year i plan on using some micarta
and using a drill planter blade it's high carbon steel. wolfy can explain what a drll planter is.
right now my right thumb is healing, i took off the tip on the bench grinder.
anyhow i plan to make a bushcraft knife similar to say a TOPS knife 1/4'in thick 9 to 91/2'in long.
green canvas micarta handles brass pins &  lanyard hole.
