Project:
Scribing Knife #2
 Starting Date: July 2012
 Completion Date: July 2012
 Inspiration: My first attempt "Scribing Knife #1" was not practical being only right-handed. Lee Valley's Striking Knife appeared like a good design http://www.leevalley.com/en/Wood/page.aspx?p=60044&cat=1,42936
 Size: 8" overall, 3 1/4" blade
 Wood Species: Madagascar Rosewood
 Finish: DEFT Danish Oil "Clear Natural"
 Materials Source: Old Rockwell 6" jointer knife
 Additional References: Lee Valley

The blade is made from an old 6" jointer knife.


The handle was turned on the lathe and then two sides were flattened and hand sanded with 400 Grit paper. I am quite pleased with the feel of the grip, it just feels right!

This knife can be used right-handed or left-handed...
