Hand Forged Christmas Presents for Four Friends
These field knives, forged from O1 tool steel, were made as a Christmas present for 3 lifelong friends and 1 of their sons. They are full tang and based on the same design and size (blade about 3” and overall length about 8 1/4”). The handle material for each was determined by the preference of its future owner. From left to right: vintage Westinghouse bleached linen Micarta (30+ yo), Cocobolo, brown canvas burlap phenolic laminate and Arizona Desert Ironwood burl. This was a fun project and I wish each a Merry Christmas and many more years of friendship and outdoor adventures together. Thank you for this opportunity.
