Good job you didnt make it boomerang shape then or you would never have got rid of it :D

 

The first ones a nice shape and would make a good little gutting knife for rabbits etc.

Well Done

      Here is the UK legal carry Opinel mod slip-joint i have been working on.

      I dropped the point on the original no8 blade and shortened it to 3"
       
      The slightly unusual shape was determined by the central pivot point and steps in the original blade. You can see this from the pre-assembly pic. Although it looks slightly unusual it has the advantage of giving a shoulder to place your thumb on which actually holds the slipjoint spring in making it even more solid and less likely to fold up on your fingers than a normal slipjoint design.
       
      Milled brass liners with soldered bolsters and stabilized stag scales, all fixed together with stainless pins with the exception of the brass rivets on the scales.

      A little something for the Mora fans that don't want a fixed blade.
       
      104mm Sandvic stainless Mora blade with the classic scandi grind.
      N0 8 Opinel hardware and fitted to red stag antler with stabilized core.
      Phosphor Bronze contact plates to give smooth long lasting action.
      Overall length of knife is 140mm

      .....A knife made from a wheel bearing.
       
      Recently changed the front wheel bearing on my car. I had heard the steel can make good blades so did a bit of research. Bearing steel tends to be Bohler 52100 and indeed makes good knife steel with a good chromium content keeping the carbide grains small and the blade tough.
       
      I made this carver for the kitchen, similar to the shape of the one that it is replacing (inferior cheap stainless and now well worn from sharpening). The handle is melamine, not the most exotic looking but functional. The blade is made from the opposite side race to the one it is sitting on in the pictures.
       
      Have been using it for a week and it still slices paper so i am very hppy with its performance.
