Knife for my Brother




I wanted to make a knife for my brother this time around. We both love fishing and camping so I thought a full tang camp knife would be ideal. It's the same shape as the one I made for Dad with a few variations in the design.
I gave this one a partial scandi grind and some filework along the spine. The handle is made from soapwood and ringed myall with a fibre spacer.
I was pretty happy with the way this knife turned out. It could have done with less gaps when I epoxied it and some of the pins didn't work out the way I had hoped but it's all good experience, and my brother didn't offer up any complaints. He was pretty pleased in fact.

Thanks SBW, that's very kind of you to say. My brother's worth the effort though.
