Men at Work
The Man-Child has been hard at work since football season came to an end.
Making knives, of his own design, to sell and also taking some commissions from friends.
This weekend he tried his hand at making a sheath from leather. Typically he makes sheaths from a plastic form called Kydex.
Secret Agent Farmer Man was around not so much to work as to give some advice.
Sinew was the, "thread", of choice for this project.
Not quite finished, but just getting tried on for size.
A cleaver, commissioned by a friend, to use during hunting season.
Several knives made recently.
Starting from the left, an Ebony handle, synthetic handle with a Kydex sheath, a cedar handled knife, and lastly a cherry handle with another Kydex sheath.
The Kydex comes in plastic sheets and thus my kitchen griddle was sacrificed for the knife making good. I can already see that a cutting board and pan are the next things to go to the garage......
