Here is knife number two. I built this in hopes of auctioning it off for the Virginia Trappers association. It is a skinning knife. I got a bunch of knife scales at a sale and not sure what kind of wood this is. If someone could help that would be great. Hope u like it.

I am just getting into knife making, my son and I are knife freaks and want to try making one. I picked up an old truck spring off the side of the road the other day and got even more excited. My wife thinks I’m nuts. But going to give it a try. I too, would like to see more pics of the grinder. I’ve read a lot of articles on annealing and tempering, and of course don’t know where to turn. The temperatures have to be high. A young lady next door to my office, makes pottery and has a kiln. I don’t want to use it in case I damage it. Seems there are many different kilns for glass, pottery, knives etc; I ran across one article that uses sawdust in a hole in the ground for annealing and tempering. Thank you for the encouraging post. Perhaps Lumberjocks could start a section on knife making. I have seen a few posts on the subject, including a knife from an old lawn mower blade.

Given the color and the grain it may be walnut.

Have your say...
