Default Some knives i've made

Here are a couple knives i've made out of a deer shed base and a blade.

This knife blade was off of a older knife that had a broken handle on it.





This was the first blade I tried making. I just took the grinder to it and then the die grinder to try and smooth it out.



I made a couple more this past week but they have wooden handles. The blades I made a little better but still out of a plain peice of steel. The recent ones I took to the steel rod to really sharpen them up. I was cuttin my steak with one of them the other day. It cut real nice. It also cuts a tomatoe like butter. Ill get pictures of them up later on when I get home from school.

Okay here are the other two knives I made. These knives are mainly just for show... I don't plan to use them for anything since I bought a cleaning set before turkey season so theres really no need for another knife...





I tried going for a snake look for the handle on the one. Im not really a professional carver but if you put your imagination to it im sure you can get a snake out of it.

Looking good. Make sure you keep your first knives around, especially if you keep at it. They are fun to go back to and see where you started out. -JH

Thanks guys. Not too long ago I got those knives back out for fun and I took my dremel tool and put the sanding bits on and rounded out the edges on the deer antler ones.. It looks nicer.
