Carving knife

By plantigrade on 2014.11.28 In Carving Knives

I just finished the sheath for my carving knife. The knife itself isn’t at all fancy. I’ve kept it simple and quite rough and bulky to increase the grip on the handle. That means I hardly even sanded it, and didn’t oil it at all. It is after all a tool and nothing else. For the same reason I also left the wooden part of the sheath rough and unfinished. I actually carved the wood, for it to have that roustique look.

I really enjoy making stuff like this all by hand. Though the blade has been bought, it’s such a great feeling to create something as useful as this.

The handle and the wooden sheath are oak and the blade is a Brusletto “Trollungen”, which makes an excellent carving knife.

Welcome

This blog is about my deep fascination with nature and wilderness living. The technologies, skills and crafts of “primitive peoples”, and the pre agricultural world. This won’t be without modern materials, but is for sharing my experiences/adventures with the full extent of my feet placed solidly and responsibly in the natural world.
