Vacation knives!

Post by taz575 »

I had a couple weeks off from work for vacation, so I got all sorts of stuff done! I got those 2 long nightmare Shechita in S90V done, but I have those in another post!

Nitro V Tuna Pokers! One in black/OD Green linen Micarta, one in natural canvas micarta and one in black SureTouch. These are double edged, chisel ground blades to stab a tuna under the pectoral fin to cut the blood line to bleed them out quickly without damaging a lot of meat.

The wharnie is neat! I don't see a ton of wharncliffe fixed blades, but some influence from Michael Janich's research on the blade shape has me considering one for an edc fixed blade eventually. The camp knife looks like fun too!

The original plan for the warncliff was for the back of the blade and handle to be higher and more in line. There was a little void in the wood of the handle and by the time I got it removed, the handle was lower than the spine was, so I did the thumb ramp in there. Look weird, but feels nice in the hand!

I like that Wharncliffe blade too. I have a Yojimbo 2 but it is so big in my pocket and rather "scary" looking (not a good choice for young kids birthday parties) that I never carry it. Very nice profile for slicing though. That big one looks like an adventure waiting to happen. :)

I don't do many warncliffs, but I may do up a few more. They are a nice utility sharp, and easy to sharpen, too! The one I posted is available if anyone is interested!
