Fixed blade builds

Post by Tony_Wood » Mon Feb 05, 2018 10:35 pm

I know that this is mainly a forum for slipjoints, that is what brought me here. I also like fixed blades, and have building them for about five years now. I call my knives Sheep’s Foot Knives.
Here are a couple that just came off the bench. Both 1084.

Hope you enjoy.

Smallish at 4.5” overall, with pocket slips.

Wow Tony don't see even one that is not fabulous. How many you make a month? Are they all based on orders? Really quality stuff. I think that one with the Olive wood is my favorite.

In the winter months I make one a week, or so. Unless I have an order. Then I work to fill orders.
I always make a few extra to set out at local knife/gun shows. Usually don’t sell well at gun shows, but the traffic by the table ends up generating orders.

Thanks for the kind words. Sorry, I am just responding. I missed your reply until now.

Another one in 1084. I use that for all of my stock removal knives as the heat treat is consistent.
Curly maple, mosaic pin, and matching bead.

Thanks for stopping by!
