Ok folks, I am gauging interest and also want to know if we are allowed to do this per forum rules.
I mentioned on another post about doing knife in the hat or a knife swap. Here is what would happen, we would decide on a style and materials and a time line. Then anyone who agrees to it will make a knife. Once done we will post them on here for all to see. Then we would put the names in a hat and randomly draw who gets what knife. So each participant would be receiving a knife from one of the other participants. Obviously we would do as many participate that want to but we would have to make sure we have enough so no one would be shorted.
Hunting style knife
Blade length between 3-4 inches
Made from a old file
Handle material: any your choice
Timeline a month from start date
What do you guys think. I was choosing and old file cause I suspect most of us can come up with one and the new guys can follow the tutorial. I will randomly pick who gets each knife in fact we can do that at the start that way none of us have seen any of the knives. Posting the finished knive in the knife forum is a must so all can see your work. Remember this isn't about being a great knife worker it is about doing your best and sharing your work and getting a keepsake from someone else as well. So lets chat it up and see what we come up with.
