    Default Christmas Knives

    Made some knives for Christmas gifts this year. My dad who just started hunting again after a long absence, didn't have a knife. So I made him a hunting knife of my design. He is my hero and I call him the Man of Steel because of his strength and the hardware he has in his back. Hence the Superman engraving. Made the sheath as well.

    My mom is very hard to buy for, much like the whole family. If they need anything, they usually go out and buy it. She does a lot of cooking and she brought home all her knives(they live in FL) for me to sharpen. I noticed she didn't have a decent paring knife, so that is what I made her. A sheath wasn't going to cut it for a paring knife, so I decided on making a case for it that also serves as a small cutting board. I inlaid the top and the bottom of the case/cutting board to hold the knife.

    I also made a hunting knife for my daughter and a Bird and trout knife for my brother. Pics of those to come when I get them finished. Thanks for looking.

    I've already told you more than I know.

    Wow, those came out fantastic! Love the sheath design too. What do you use for steel?

    Great looking knives, beautifully done. I’m sure they will be a keepsake for your wife and daughter. Glad to see you got a few responses on your thread!

    Good luck on the trail!

    Years back I sold some old railroad spikes on eBay to a guy that was using them to make knives.
