Another knife maker's pics

New guy here, Thought I would show some of my work.
All my knives are made with A-2 or 0-1 tool steel
All sheaths are sewn by hand.
Mostly 18Th Century style, But a few with a modern touch also.
Here are a few pics of my latest
Thanks for looking!

Very nice! I like the file work. It's good to meet a fellow knifemaker. Greetings from eastern Washington.

How do you guys do the etchings/engravings on the blades?

Depends. Some are stamped. For instance I have a custom stamp with my initials "DVW". Some are etched with a tool such as this one.





I think this is my favorite of yours lonehunter.

x4 on that knife and thank you DVW, the whole knife making hobby is very interesting,
As i've said in past posts I have no artistic skills but I think I might even enjoy giving this a try at some point in the near future.
I think this may be a great way to start making custom Christmas gifts for next year
even if I screw them up at least the memories will stay with them for many many years after I'm gone.

Thanks for the kind words fellas!
Bruce, There are numerous was to do the etching but I use acid, You put down a base on the blade to protect the steel and scratch what you want with a sharp object, The acid will eat the area where you scratched and removed the base coat.
Your imagination or artistic talant is the only limit.
That is how I made the deer track on this one.

Here is a view of the filework from the top.

Here is the one I made for my wife.


Thanks again!
