Used the last of the walnut and found a nice cedar plank to do up two more knives. One piece knives are easier than the glued in blades.

Real interesting! I like the colors and that it’s different as well, great idea!

All your knives are great. Do you have some real stone knives to work from or photos? I have found some obsidian tools and arrow heads on my place here. I am always intrigued by this kind of stuff. Great work.

I do indeed have a number of authentic Indian artifacts that came mostly from Limestone County Alabama.
I don’t refer to them during carving. I’m basically “flying by the seat of my pants” using a mental picture.
I have another knife in process and hope to post it before too long. Thanks to all for the kind comments.

Your knives are fantastic! What kind of finish do you use on them?

Thanks for your compliment. Most of the knives have only been polished on a buffing wheel.
The ones with very dark wood have been colored with black leather dye. On some of the lighter cedar knives,
I have sprayed WD-40 to rub in and bring out the color.

Have your say...
