My friend asked if i could make a knife for him to give to hes father for fathers day, and the budget was 80€ so i went ahead and made something nice :wink:

Handle is mahongany (managed to make so tight fit that didnt need any epoxy. Basically so snug that i have a feeling that the riveting was not even necessary :D used 3kg hammer to fit it...) bolsters are 3mm brass, and has few pieces of birchbarn..

Blade is forged from silversteel, unannealed, using my new technique of heat-treating, and has a sharpening "groove" (a small notch next to bolster to make sharpening easier) tested it by beating anthler and and cutting aluminium and few beerbottle caps, no problem :D

Pics make it look bulky, its pretty sleek in real life, this must be the best woodworking tool i have ever made...

A knife like that is definitely worth the cost, I'm just surprised by how much he spent on a father's day gift. I'd probably tell my dad that it would cover his birthday and christmas present as well... I'm not made of money :D

Having had the privilege of handling Jake's work, I can assure you that 80 euro is rather cheap when you consider the finished product.

That's just because you're a broke student ;) once you have a decent job, it won't actually be such a big deal.

Wow Jake! great knife ...
I've been viewing your work for quite some time now *lurking* and thought i would have ago myself using a old carbon steel file. (W2 i think it was?) with Norplex Micarta handles and 1/4" aluminium pins.

It has been heat treated and tempered to 64 HRC .. which is annoying to sharpen :P

Flat zero grind, but technically speaking. It's a very lean convex.

Keep up the awesome work Jake!

I have had bad luck with fulltang knifes, i believe many of you yave seen a pic of my thumb :?

Always remeber to clamp the blade down when you are drilling holes for the rivets to the blade, or youll end up like i did
