My 10 year old son Rusty wanted me to post a couple of pictures of the fishing knife he made. It is made from a sawzall blade with part of the saw teeth left on for a scaler.He wanted to do it himself and did except for grinding the bevel for the edge which I helped with.

Very impressive, and a great idea to keep the teeth partially on for a scaler.

What is the handle made of?
It's a very nice color.

I think the wood is either bloodwood or redheart.I am not sure which.

My son was really impressed that someone from New Zealand had seen and commented on his knife.

Thanks

What was used for the handle? Was it recycled from something else or fresh wood purchased for the sole purpose of making a handle?
I turn wooden pens and pencils and this was a piece of wood that I had bought for a pen blank.Since you only need a small piece of wood to turn a pen, you can get a lot of exotic wood that either isn't available are is very expensive in large peices.

Id be very proud of that young man,what a good job he made of that knife,i like the saw back and the way he pinned the handle to the tang.

Good job,well done if you ask me.:thumb:

Very impressive,it looks like an English deck knife but with a bit extra.:D:

:wow

Now see, theres a reason why someone like me doesnt post a piccies of his little efforts, and thats because someone like your son would make them seem more pathetic :thumb:.

I can see a real talent in the making there, as sticks said very similar to the Green River Deck knife, hobby or future career?
