Lunch break knives

As ive been on knifemaking course as an instructor for last 4 days i havent had a chance to do anthing significant for myself but during today and yesterday,in cofee & lunch breaks i did these.

Tiny 15cm long puukko, with handmade blade, curly birch handle with stack of rawhide leather fro better control while carving and i also cast a brass part into it, fron used rifle cartridges.

13 cm long stubby knife, maybe a future necker,who knows. From an coilspring forged into blank and then forged and ground into this shape. Some simple filework in front of handle and rest of teh spine is sharp for firesteel use. I dont have any idea what the handles are but its some naturally dark brown wood,hard as a rock and its secured with thin leather spacers and brass pins.

I think you did a fantastic job on both of those knives. Totally professional looking. :)

My favorite is the puukko. I love small puukkos like this because they are easy to handle and control when doing fine whittling/cutting tasks. I also really like the wide/high bevel on the blade.

I think the bottom one looks like it would make a good skinner. :)

I always enjoy seeing the new stuff you come out with.

That bottom one, if you decide you don't like it anymore, you can send it to me. 'kay?
