Just thought I would post a few pics of knives now and then. Here are a few "kit" knives meaning that I bought the blades and just finished them. I thought that they would make good boning knives. Buying the blades makes it inexpensive and fast to put together. These are made from AUS-8A stainless steel and the six inch blade is very flexible. The handle materials are canvas micarta, wood, and black paper micarta.
More Kit Knives
These kit knives are actually sold as steak knives. The blades are five inches long and 1/16" thick. It is fairly stout and should work well for removing meat from the leg bones. I am guessing that the steel is either 440A or AUS-6A. Handle materials are black paper micarta and canvas micarta. It is really inexpensive to get knives this way. I probably only have $15 into each one. Granted, they won't hold an edge as long as if I had ground them myself out of ATS-34 or CPM S-30V, but at this price it is a quick and easy way to play with different sizes, shapes and handle materials.
Beautiful knives DVW and very nice job by you!!!
Finished another fillet/boning kit knife today. This is the last one of them for a while. It has a Diamondwood handle.
I started three more hunting knives. Here they are rough ground from 1/8 inch thick D2. I don't have a drop point for myself anymore so I am keeping one of them. The other drop point is going to my brother-in-law who just started hunting this last season. The bottom skinner is for a friend at work. I thought that it would be fun to take pictures of them as they progress through the process.
That's a nice looking fillet knife would work well on Pike! :whistling:
Here are six blades all ground and back from being heat treated. Now to polish them and put the handles on. Two of the un-ground knives in the post above are in this group.
These are the second set of pics I have seen of your knives, your handiwork is ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!!
Here is the third one from the top all finished. It has a Whitetail deer antler handle.
Full sized picture is on this web site.
