Hope you don't mind the knives

These are the last 2 knives before The Reno Show.

 

Now I'm in sheath making mode.

 

The first one has been on the bench for quite awhile.

It was made from a railroad spike.

 

The knife turned out to be 9 inches overall length with a 4 1/2 inch blade about 1 1/8 inch at its widest. † Full length distal taper starting at about 3/16 thick, swedge is not sharpened. Its about 5/16 thick at the guard and 5/8 inch thick at its butt. † The seacow rib was really weathered so I coated it with mineral oil and its color came to life.† Here's a pic of the finished Railroad Spiked knife.

I also did a small pictorial of it being made if your interested. Railroad spike pictorial

 

I also made another Relic knife this one has a guard and handle spacer.

Its about 11 1/2 inches over all with a 6 1/2 inch heavy textured blade, weathered antler crown, 1018 guard and handle spacer.
