Here's something I've never done before.

Hunting/camp knife from 1084 carbon steel. Handle is stabilized spalted maple burl.

Having never made, or really even used such a knife, I just kind of winged it having been given carte blanche from the customer. Looked up a few designs, and made what I thought would make a good example.

Knife is made from 0.1875" (3/16") stock, and is flat ground down to 0.02" at the edge with a distal taper.

Turned out fairly nice.....but now it's back to some kitchen knives.

looks good. i've been getting interested in a lot of hunting, camping, bushcraft knives as of late....

folks that do a lot bushcraft prefer a scandi grind for ease of sharpening and what they claim also the strength of the edge.


a very successful one in that type of knife that's bang for the buck is mora knives and martiini.

they both use 12c27 for stainless. i forgot what mora uses for their carbon versions.

helle is another sucessful brand, more expensive though.

for US brands, it would probably be kabar beckers, esee, ontario, condor....

=D
