Firstly, if this is in the wrong section I apologize.
Now, I'm still new to this forum but over the years as a lurker i have been amazed at the knowledge and skill of its members. So I've decided to talk about my new tools.
Firstly is my knife! This is 3mm carbon steel, with a narrow tang (I was watching ray mears having a blade made and took inspiration from his blade and tang) the blade has a scandi grind. (Cheated here as my father has a metal workshop in his garage, next will be done by hand).
I had some bowl blanks left over so chose a nice light one (birch) and some brass fittings.
I really like the feel of the knife, and when making it, that's just what I went on, does it feel right.
The second thing I've almost finished is a side jet alcohol stove. Can't wait to try it out, from what I've seen of them, they are quite efficient. Just needs sanding and polishing.
Other things I've made are bracelets, stages, monkey fists, watch straps, belts and dog leads all from paracord.
Thanks for looking. I'm a beginner at this, but hope to improve my skills with knife making.
