    Hunting knife handle

    Ooh man, you are going to get a lot of replies...I used to use a mix of linseed oil and melted beeswax on my handmade bows. That worked well for them, but not a lot of wear and blood involved. I have just been using a lot of Tru oil on my handles recently. I also use Lignum Vitae and blood wood...

    I just signed up with them but have not actually looked into their terms too much. They seem pretty good so far...

    Cheap Gift Knife

    I think that it might also be a measure of how we as makers define "cheap". To me if the materials cost are a certain amount, I will define my knife as "cheap to make", but only so far as the materials are concerned. I would agree that the OP has made a beautiful knife using"cheap to source"...

    What's the best way to sell knives as a hobbyist, not as a business?

    Pretty much what I was thinking. Build up inventory and then I might open an Etsy store or something. That's a while away though, LOL!

    What's the best way to sell knives as a hobbyist, not as a business?

    Hey Derek, I was just watching some of your YouTube stuff yesterday. Did you look into operating as a sole proprietorship or a limited company? From what I read on the CRA website years ago, there were not many benefits to being just a sole prop...I had one here on Ontario years ago for my CAD work.

    Honestly, no you do not need a full flat grind, but this was my first one, and I felt like challenging myself to see if I could pull it off. Happy to say that I did!

    Yep, my favourite is a utility I made. 1/16" 15N20, 6" long flat grind and still sharp after MUCH use. Cuts through everything you just listed :)

    Randy, what thickness are you using for the chef's knife? I just gave my brother one (kitchen chopper, first pic) that I made using 0.125" AEBL. Not sure if that was a normal thickness to use or not for a chopper. Did another just for me in 0.093" AEBL. That works really nicely.
