View Full Version : Another cord wrapped knife

04-20-2013, 04:18 PM
I have been playing around with cord wrapped handles a bit. Here is my latest effort. The blade is forged from 1084 with a wrought iron guard and pommel. The handle is full tang built up with leather, wrapped in cotton cord with cotton ribbon on the outside. The whole handle is soaked in epoxy so it wont undo. The tang extends through the pommel and is hot pinned. The blade is 3/16" thick and 8 3/4" long

It is hard to say I only get to work on knives a bit here and there. The hand finish is where I spend the time and that makes or breaks the look of the knife.

As for the other guys I'm sure we could work something out :)
