Nice one Rio. I particularly like the idea of bog oak simply because I found it difficult to get hold of when I was doing the wood turning. It certainly makes a nice hand. Jok.

Never really been in to knife making but like to look at a nice hunting knife or two👌🏽A lot of knives are expensive to buy I appreciate the time an work that’s gone in to making them but could never justify paying the prices to be stopped by the old bill and have a decent working man’s knife taken from me or loose it while out hunting I’ve lost a few half decent knives in my time I tend to rock the good old openal there cheap and do the job. This knife I made from a large disc cutter disc I found at work the brass pins on the handle are from a caravan hook up plug an the handle is made from a old piece of furniture

Nice knife!

That's exactly the attitude that led me to knifemaking! :)

You don't want to spend that much on a knife but are not happy with the knives offered from stock? Make your own! I can guarantee that within a few months you will get a knife that you will apreciate much more than every other one. 

Just one advice: I would start with a decent knife steel. Steels like 1.2442, 1.2510 or 1.3505 are quite cheap and easy to harden. The result will outperform any recycled disc, spring, chisel, file..

Regards

Nicolas

ive been doing it a fair while and make knives in batches  of 6 or 8  and i can buy materials at the right price ,its not rocket science  and prices  vary  ,making them is easy    selling is the real  trick  .....
