The Pretty Boy

I am a great lover of small knives, but I've really not made that many. When my Dad asked me to make him a small knife I jumped at the chance. I loved the pattern so much that I am adding it to my regular catalog.
Up-cycling steel takes a bit more work than when using flat stock. First you must cut the steel so that it is manageable pieces, then you must anneal the steel so that it can be worked with. Next it must be cleaned of any rust, and any ruff spots left over from the cutting must then be removed. These steps make an Up-cycled knife a little more expensive but I feel it's worth it to see new life breathed into old steel.
This handy little blade is made from high carbon steel and takes a really nice heat treatment. This blade also has a full height convex grind, that makes this little knife a slicer through and through. It will make a great EDC neck knife, a food prep, or carving knife.
The blade is 2 1/2' inches long and the handle is 3' inches.

While my normal models come with Sweet Gum scales I'm offering this one with Spalted Maple as the standard for it. as well as a full mirror polish.
However if you're interested in saving a few bucks I'll be happy to post a custom listing for you minus the pretties. (But why would you want to do that?)

This little blade will serve you well for years to come.

Good voyage with it, traveler.
