Knife swap Take 2

Folks,


I know its been quiet in here. But I am curious who would be interested in participating in a knife in the hat or knife swap again? For those who dont know it would be open to anyone willing to make a knife The only requirement is you try your best. We would agree on a style type etc and then we would go from there. Each person would be required to ship their knife to one of the participants. We would chose this at random. You then would receive a knife from someone else too. Obviously you would need to be 18 to participate.


SO lets hear it who would do it?


Ross

A gun will get you thru times of no money better than money will get you thru times of no gun.

I'm down for another one.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

Last time Pa woodsman was in too.
Last one was out of an old file, hunting style 3-4 inch blade, handle material anything goes.

We could make a bird and trout style, or perhaps a small necker type? Are we forging or stock removal or either? handle material, antler, wood, maybe out of the old wood pile? file work? Bowie, hmmm so many choices.

Mine would be forged but I think it would depend on what the person does. don't matter to me I'm in. Thanks

Ok fellas so hows this sound:


Style: either a camp knife(think big guy chopper) or a cleaver style still need to decide one

Method: forged or stock removal your choice

Handle Material: Your choice but should be found material or scrounged up. No buying it. Ie old antler you have, wood outta the wood pile etc. The better the story around the material the more interesting

Guard/Bolsters: maker choice

Sheath: Optional up to each maker. I dont want anyone limited cause they done have leather etc


Any skill level welcome. This is about getting something form someone who gave there all, talking about the product and improving is always welcome. Never made a knife I am sure we can guide you some assuming you have some basic tools and tool knowledge..



I also posted about it in the General hunting forum to see if others want to jump in...hoping we get a few more folks.


LEt me know your thoughts guys
