Sometimes you just have to do something different. Today I was chopping vegetables for a camping trip and I thought that it would be nice to have a kitchen knife for the event. So I dug through my box of old half finished knives and found one that I had started about 15 years ago. It was from an old band saw blade that was at the local sawmill. I left the pits and scratches on it, ground an edge and gave it a plain wooden handle. The wood was from a local Locust tree. I used a light brown leather dye on the wood and then sealed it. The rivets are brass bolt style. The blade is 5 inches long with an overall of 9 inches.
