steels. Fiddleback Maple handle and stainless steel furniture. Razor sharp
blade and clip wise. Hand formed 7oz leather sheath made and hand
stitched by me in my shop.
|The Cabin Memorial Knife
A special project taken on early this year. The family that lost their cabin to
a wildfire wanted to commission a knife to commemorate the loss. I was
given remnants recovered from the ashes of the blaze. A brass fireplace finial,
a puddle of aluminum, some charred Russian Olivewood, a child's spoon, and
a single chainsaw chain. I thought about how to combine all these
components for a long time. The blade is 5160 with a san-mai construction
incorporating the chainsaw chain. All the other components were utilized in
the knife, sheath, and the extra material was used as a display base.
