Wood Whittling Knife Stage 3
Wood Whittling Knife Stage 3

Clipper lighter included for scale.

Finished grinding the final shape for a more comfortable cutting angle and thinned it down approximately just under 2mm

Blade Dimensions

Blade Length : 38mm
Blade Depths : 10mm (Handle end) 11mm (Belly) 1.5mm (Tip)
Spine Thickness : 2mm

I shaped it more with a file, specifically the cutting angle using a small metal file and lots of red marker pen.

Sharpened it up with lots of oil and a bench oilstone, sharpened more finely using a Fallkniven DC 4.

It is hair popping sharp at this point, so I went out to find a suitable piece of dead wood for the handle.

Shaped the basic handle scales using the Condor Bushlore and sawed it in half with a Bahco saw. I then used the whittling knife to carve out a custom square groove in both halves of the scales. (It carves well)

Once I carved the groove I applied a liberal amount of epoxy glue to everything, clamped the two halves together and left overnight.

The next job is to properly shape the scales to form the handle.
