My "wildwood" set of carving knives
« on: June 04, 2012, 12:05:39 PM »
I have recently made a set of carving knives using some spalted Ivy branches I had from trimming a overgrown hedge. Ivy tends to have contorted branches and they happen to fit the hand rather confortably when trimmed carefully!

There are knives, spoon knives, crooked knives and a V shaped Flexcut carving chisel in the set.

I hand forged all the blades except the Flexcut of course!















All the knives are very confortable to use,  despite the contorted shapes of the handles.

Enjoy!

I enjoy seeing rustic tool handles like those! A couple of them look like they might have made good pipes as well. :thumbsup:
