Scrap knife
« on: April 21, 2012, 10:01:51 AM »
I've had this for a while.  It is actually usable though it looks like crap.  I modded an Old Hick and had a chunk with kind of a rat-tail tang, so I made this from it.

It's wrapped with artificial sinew right now.  I'm re-wrapping it with real sinew soon. 

The sheath is kinda cool...also from scrap.  I need to cut some longer latigo so I can tie it on my gear or shirt and still have a retainer to keep it from falling out.  I lost it on it's first field test.  Luckily a scout noticed and returned it.

Pretty neat  could almost be a PSK type piece  use it as a spear point if you had to

I want to build a PSK type blade along these lines.  This one has a rat-tail tang and doesn't stay in very well, but it works good for milder work, like shavings.

However, if I were to redesign it that way I want it, I'd pretty much have what PW builds, so I'm saving up for one of those instead.

It's a fun little blade though!
