A simple knife

I was asked by a friend to turn his shed antler into a knife handle. This knife was to be a land owner gift. The steel I bought for this project was 1/8 thick 1 1/2 wide O1 (oil quench). The wrapper even came with the recipe instructions on the label.

The antler he sent. It was a little long so I cut about an inch off the end but I will have a use for that as well.

I can see a blank slate here. I can't leave it that way.

First I removed as much of the core as I needed.

Then I started working on the blade.

Then I roughed out a finger guard.

Time to bevel.
