I wrapped this #8 with hemp and reshaped the point with a file.
That looks really good. keep up the good work. Prov 27 : 17
Not bad, did you use epoxy?
Looks Nice !
I like it!
I want to drop the point on one of mine...
Wasn't to hard, go slow with a good sharp file..
I just got a No8 in.
I saw an Opie in a movie the other day. I thought it had been modded, but it was stock. Turned out to be one of those N Degree ones with the arched grip. Can't see paying all that extra money for less wood and a drop point, so I ordered another 8.
We shall see...
Opinel #10. Took a rasp to the finger grove; now much easier to get to the blade to open. Sanded down the handle and stained with walnut stain. Just have to work on making the blade easier to open. This is my main food processing knife in the woods.
Well this took all of 45 minutes. Now what? lol
My new No8 drop point curvy handle
Now what? Develop a patina on that blade!
My #8 ez-open
Just started working on my #6, I love Opies, they are inexpensive and so much fun to work on. Not sure where I'm going with this one just yet. I'll figure it out as I go.
very very cool. Is it glued on, and how did you cut blade groove out?
I, also, would like to know how you did that.
Finished her up. Charred, and soaked in BLO.
Made a little neck sheath for the #6
Nice use of copper wire.
My well used and much loved(and abused) No.7!
Sorry for the late reply.
I used the blade, just closed it. Then used a knife to trim the cord and some sandpaper.
Just did 2 quick and dirty mods on two no. 7s. It was the child version.
And the results:
The bigger one needs some polish and some sharpening.
Had a little down time today. I have small hands and this fits better.
