I will keep you in mind for an addition in the future as you are making some very nice looking knives. I just placed an order for two knife blades to see if I can do something with the nice walnut my brother-in-law gave me. This is old stacked stuff that should be good to go. I hope they are servicable grade knives when finished. What do you reccomend for sealing the wood? Thanks for any tips that you might send along.
Nothing expensive in the fish knives as they are used every summer.
I use boiled linseed oil to seal the wood. Give it one coat and let it dry over night. Then wipe it down and give a second coat and let it dry completely. If you want you can post links to the blades that you bought and I can give some pointers on how to put them together.
Just finished this yesterday. It has a 1/8" thick D2 blade, and a Bocote wood handle. It's basically my version of an Old Timer Sharp Finger, but with a drop point blade. It's the second to the bottom in the pic of six.
