I had these old rusted hedge and bush trimmers that a neighbor was getting rid of. I saved them for the metal blades. I finally got around to taking them apart and start starting to cut out a fixed blade hunting knife blank. I have too many knives and my one son has a nice collection as I buy him at least one or two a year. I wanted to do something different and make my own for once. I cleaned the metal up and cut the shape with a wheel on my angle grinder. Started to shape it. I ordered the blade stop and bone and also imported antler slab for handle. Got brass pins ordered also and a nice leather sheath. Now a lot of fine grinding and filing and polishing. . Also have to re heat treat it and into warm oil. Im going slow to not screw it up as its only the second one I ever made.
