Carving tools #3: Spoon knife leather sheaths.

02-14-2014 12:33 PM by mafe | 27 comments »

Spoon knife leather sheathsI know it’s not made of wood – lol. Since I care for my tools and the spoon knifes when useful are razor sharp, I thought it would be wise to make them some sheaths, to replace the rubber once I made from bicycle tire tube (they did not stand the sharp edge and were not sexy at all – lol). After browsing the web a little, I found a type I liked and the rest was as they say at Nike: ‘just do it’ or Sinatra: http://youtu.be/kF-rtkrcQRg...

A handful of tools, knifes I have a bunch here (all self made),...

02-21-2016 09:05 PM by mafe | 17 comments »

Carving knifes from old plane ironspoon knife from jig saw blade With a soft spot for tool making and beauty, I decided it was time to make my own carving knifes, found a wonderful old Chinese hand forged plane iron in a drawer of junk in my workshop and decided to give it a go. This is what we will end up with, two carving knifes and a long blade spoon knife.(This sketch was made after they had come to life). Started up with no real plan, just that I wanted two blades, one flat and ...

Honing stickfield honing and stropping for spoon knifes First little project in the shop after it’s reopening. Made this little drawing in my sketchbook last year and decided it was a good little get ‘started project’. So a piece of a old broomstick. Run through the table saw a little over the center. Making for the slice. Ripping down half way. Finishing the cut. That’s a stick with a slice… Making a groove for a O-ring. Here the O-...

The last blog in tis series was me showing the old spoon knife with it’s new handle.Now it’s time to make it a sheath. ...

Blacksmith coal forging classs and the tools I made there. #3: Small spoon knife, making the handle

04-03-2016 02:24 PM by mafe | 3 comments »

Small spoon knifemaking the handle Simple handle for a small spoon knife.Some tools are both beautiful and functional when kept rough in finish.This spoon knife will have a sideways twist when in use so a strong hold will be useful so my hand will not get tired, also I thought the blade and the handle should have the same grade of finish, so I decided to use some beautiful wood, but to keep it simple and rough. Hand forged blade, welded on to a rod. Made it since I needed a small rad...

Taking of happy, this was a happy way to start the day.Filiz brought croissants and just baked sour dough bread and put fresh strawberries on top....

This blog is dedicated to my friend Madts who send me some beautiful Mesquite wood that I used a bit of for this handle, while smoking on one of his late fathers pibes (more about this in a later post).
