View Full Version : Broken blade - recycled

02-27-2010, 02:08 PM
So, I had this broken blade laying around. I reshaped it sort of drop point like, then used a piece of hardwood I had on hand to make a handle. Doesn't look pretty, but is very comfortable in hand and the blade holds a very good edge.

Thanks for looking.

Excellent reuseage of perfectly good materials that would otherwise be thrown out.

Very nice little knife, with a ton of uses from peeling an apple to cleaning a fish.

I love to save steel that others might discard. Nicely done!

Looks like a great little blade. Would make a nice little neck knife.

Daughter returned from a FTA conference down to Auburn last night and brought me a big pillow case size sack of scrap leather that someone she met down there was gonna throw out.

Tons of good sheath in there.

(If you have kids start training em to keep their eyes out for stuff like that, I get all kinds of finds to salvage that way.) (I think they are just humoring me to keep me out of their hair somedays, NOT really, I have great kids.)

You can go to hobby lobby and buy scrap bags of tandy leather that if you look at em will have plenty for making a nice sheath.

I'm not much of a good leather man, but lots of folk on here can clue you in on what and how to make a good one.
