[Dog Head Pommel Knife] – O1 Tool Steel, Bronze, Micarta, Antler
[Dog Head Pommel Knife] – O1 Tool Steel, Bronze, Micarta, AntlerMy first big knife project. I have tinkered with making blades for tools and have made a couple of folding knives over the years but this marks my first foray into fixed blade knives. This knife features a number of firsts, truth be told. It is the first time I made Micarta (A composite material made from layers of paper or cloth, soaked in epoxy resin), it is the first time I used antler, it is the first time I heat-treated something as large as the blade and it is the first time I tried lost-wax bronze casting (for the dog headed pommel). I am really pleased with how this came out in the end, it was a bit touch and go at points! Now... How do you make sheaths...?
