knife 2016 – Stonehill Primitive Bows

knife 2016

My friend Alfred made me a very nice blade for a hunting knife and generously gifted it to me (thanks again!). I made the handle out of cotinus and bronze. Cotinus is a  bush or little tree and has a beautiful greenish heartwood. It is the only leaf carrying species I know which has a pitch like pine, but in this case it smells like lemon. I had some matching leather laying around for a good sheet, which was hardened for better protection.

The blade is sharpened in 25° angle and cuts laike a razorblade
