For aspiring knife makers out there I thought I would start a knife from the very first and record some tips. I just need to learn how to use my video feature on my Blackberry. This was not supposed to be cut into eight pieces. Hopfully Ill get better as I go.
Silvia says I am cute, she wouldn't lie, right?

This knife is made from a farrier rasp and some maple wood that I bought in Oregon.
These two knives are for Chelsea and Meridith. I promised them some tiny knives a while ago and finally got around to making them. I was going to make a matched set but then I thought they are not identical, why should their knives be? They are cut form the same metal and forged in the same fire but are way different; just like you two. Cool, right? The handles are made of myrtle wood and if you are not familiar with myrtle wood you should do some homework and see why that might be special for you guys. I haven't decided which one should go where. I think that the first twin to comment on this post should be able to pick which one she wants. Ready go!

See, it even worked pretty good........once.
Dang, I made some ugly knives. I am a little chagrined to remember how proud I was of them. Hopefully I keep progressing and the couple I knives I am working on now (which I think are stunning beuties) will be ugly in my eyes in a few years when I am a superstar in the knife making world..... I'm not sure there are superstars in the knife making world. perhaps I'll be the first.
