New Knife Work - June 2018

I've been working on getting a "surplus" of knives going. I have about six knives that are WIP (work in progress) - these are a couple of them that I've been working on today (June 2, 2018). 

I cut off the end of the rasp to start forging the shape of the blade. 

7.5" Clip Point Bowie - This was a 14" Farrier's Rasp when I started (see first photo). 

I drilled a 3/8" lanyard hole in the handle for hanging, I can see this in the kitchen or in the greenhouse. 

And another one I started today - a "Baby Bowie" - I think I'll make these on the regular!
