I've been busy , but too lazy to update my blog
This is my take on the 'bird and trout' style of knife , I have called them 'Frog and lizard ' . The top one has olive scales , the bottom one has walnut (Thanx Stew)
The steel is 3mm 01 and the overall length is 220mm
This little box cutter has been christened 'The 4 spotted toad' and was made from a farriers rasp
The top one in this pic is called ' The newt ' and has a matching Kiridashi , made from an off cut of 01
Walnut scales with brass pins and tube
Another kiridashi made from a piece of rasp called 'the Leech
and then a flat ground bushy with orange liners and wenge scales , called 'The salamander'
and lastly another little box cutter called ' The chameleon '
I have now started naming my blades (cos its fun ) as well as making templates so that I can reproduce the shapes if I'm asked to .
This is a 'frog and lizard ' with a matching fork
The kiridashi's are always going to be one offs because they are made from offcuts and I work with the shape of the piece of steel
