Default Bullshark

First up I'd like to say a MASSIVE thankyou to Toni at Eastvillage Knives for granting me permission to make myself a Bullshark knife. An absolute gentleman and excellent craftsman!!

This is knife and sheath No.19# for me.

Still a little shaping and polishing to go. Feels excellent in the hand.Balances up nice too.

5mm 01 blade and hardened pommel. Glued and peened. Jade G10.Black liners. Stainless and brass pins. Definitely the most challenging knife I've made. There are a few differences to an original as I wanted to put some of my own little touches in.






Sheath:- 4mm veg tan with vinegaroon dye. Beeswax finish. Removable dangler in the making. Learned a little more with this one. I feel I'm slowly improving at the leatherworking. Need to work some more on the photography though Eh!







Staged US style tactical glam knife-porn shot for fun!




Comments welcome, good or bad.

Darren.

Sharpened on my new contraption!

Haha, it's well deserving of a bit of knife porn and glam shooting.

Nice one Daz, a great representation of Toni's work, he is a great guy, I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Gembloux knife show a couple of years ago very nice bloke.

Again good work, looks a 'gem' of a knife
