Default Re: Let's Talk About Knives.....................

Here are a few I made from repurposed steel from early files and large saw blades. Heat treated and tempered the steel to 57 -59 hardness.

Also enjoy refinishing old Swedish, Canadian or American axe heads and custom hafting them.

Also want to give a shout out to the Mora knives of Sweden. For everyday use around water I suggest the stainless steel Sandvik model. It comes in a variety of edges from straight blade to serrated to rounded tip for puncture prevention. I use a blaze orange handled one with a partially serrated edge for my fishing knife. Best blades for the buck which is little at under $20 for most modest models.

This one is the Mora Robust. A little thicker and wider blade with a little beefier handle. Probably the best overall knife in the world in its price bracket of $25 or less. This one is in carbon steel. Don't be fooled by the plastic handles. The stuff is indestructible. I used one as a throwing knife for over a year. Still works great.
