I had some free time today so i thought id customize my opinel and brades hatchet.

The Opinel-I turned the blade into a drop point,sanded the red stain and varnish off of the handle and treated it with danish oil then i fish tailed the end of the handle and added a 6mm brass lanyard tube,i also polished and buffed the blade.

The Hatchet-I also sanded the varnish off and treated it with danish oil and added a 9mm brass lanyard tube,i also gave it a secondery bevel.

The grain on the hatchet is lovely.
Opinel has been transformed into something looking good although its a knife I have never been able to make friends with!
