Paring Knife

A necklace knife made after my wife started getting really into Forged in Fire. Blade came from ebay, as we don’t have a proper smithy around (yet); handle is all roofing nails and sycamore scraps; the sheath is built with a wooden ‘spring’ that latches around the heel of the blade to lock it in place when it’s just hanging there but yank loose when you need it. That part only works on pretty short, lightweight knives but was pretty fun to work out, I’ll probably try some more if I need to stock a fair or anything next year.

Realizing now I forgot to get any pictures between finishing the sheath with a woodburned pattern and selling the thing
