Antler Tine Patch Knife
« on: August 25, 2017, 04:58:07 PM »
OK last knife post for awhile, forged up an Antler Tine Patch Knife this afternoon.  Blade is 3 inches.  Not sure if I'm going to stain antler as it is pretty nice as is...tippit

I agree,... the antler handle looks good "as is".  :thumbs:

Nice knife.  :)

You are definitely a knife making machine!
I'm very impressed with how quick you can produce some great looking blades.

Very nice work.

God bless,

yet another awesome tippit knife blade and handle!  :thumbs:

i don't make blades, but i do handle a few and did some with antler tines from deer i'd harvested, using helle carbon blades, drilled holes, blade tang notching and slow set epoxy - the amateur easy way.  8)  but nothing as killer as jeff's blades, handles and scales - they're pro all the way!  :thumbs: :thumbs:

Those who mess with bone have my admiration...there is no smell on earth like that of cutting or drilling antler...  :P

They feel great in hand, have a nice texture to hold onto when wet with dew or critter fluids, but the prepping is not for the feint of heart!

Nicely done to both of you!
