Moose antler and O1 steel

A friend from Maine, sent me a small moose antler and asked that I make a knife for a friend of ours, using the antler.

I cut the handle from a section of the antler that provided a finger guard.





Then picked a blade form that matched the handle.



Then made an O1 steel blade with a little file work.





Then contoured the brass and added a some ink.





Next I made a sheath and freehanded in a moose antler image.



I used the tip of the antler as a display base.

These are the pics I got from our friend who now owns the knife. He got several diff bucks in diff states that year.













It's a good feeling to make a useful tool that can be enjoyed by another.
