Latest entry my personal gallery is this very recent Nordic style knife. The steel is a Roselli Ultra High Carbon (Rockwell 64) Carpenter blade made in Finland. The maker apparently spent years perfecting the process and keeps it closely guarded. The blade is about 3 1/4" long, 3/4" wide, and .120" thick. The handle was carved from a block of stabilized Black Box Elder Burl...procured from a recent online find. See link below.

If you scroll down to the 9th set of photos you can see it as K9F. Or don't...it's up to you.

Anyway, here's the knife. While I'll usually sell most knives I make, this one is staying close.

Wow! Really nice work BH! I love stabilized Black Box Elder Burl.
Cool cheers








I was hoping I might be able to talk you into a commission some where early July to make me a very small bladed pipe knife, if you have time Sir. I'm getting into doing some estate pipe reconditioning and don't really care for reamer as much as I do a simple little knife. Something purpose built with my large-ish hand size taken into account would be wonderful. I was also looking on http://www.burlsource.com/burls-knife-scales.html and really love some of his burl wood. Something grey or light would make a nice handle for what I have in mind (I think). I know, getting ahead of myself again, sorry. Anyways give me a shout sometime and let me know what you think. Thanks

I can see why you wouldn't want to sell that one, a real stunner.
