Notice I made the theatre modified version of the knife as the guard was ground down to fit in a sheath better. (Just kidding, it was easier to make it this way!)
You gonna carve a blade as well?
Cool project, unfortunately such a project would be frowned upon by school officials.......for such is the " politically correct" climate we live in. Mores the pity.
Sadly one could get kicked out of school for that one today.
Not so in times gone by at Crozier Technical High School, where they made knives for soldiers.
I thought this a neat story:
Bowie Knife Fights, Fighters & Fighting Techniques. . .: High School Made Bowie Knives for WW II Troops
I thought of making a blade but never got to it...I also did not show the teacher either! Probably would've gotten suspended or worse. This was only 4 years ago!
Anyone have woodshop in the good ole days?
