    NS Trout knife

    I have not been making many knives in 2017, hopefully that will change in 2018. Here is a little guy I have almost finished. The blade is 3/8" (no thats not a typo) thick at the guard and forged from 5160. The handle is mostly mild steel with a little wood. All the metal has been given a heavy etch. As always comments are welcome. The name came to me when I was showing a knife to a guy and he asked what you could do with it. I said paring knife, gutting fish, etc and he stopped me and said, that might be a little light duty for the fish I catch. Hopefully this one would hold up to the task.

    I like it.
    I’d use it exclusively for eating apples.
    Why does the rest of the country get first dibbs on half my income?

    Used for gutting sharks, face to face, underwater

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken

    So I decided to make a coffin for my knife. The box is ash (Scrap and off cuts) I added weathered brass to the corners, scratches and all.
