    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?

    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.
