Shop Knives

Back in 1994 I used to make knives. As with all projects I attempted, I wanted to be the best I can be at making knives.
Some of the knives I made back in the day, did not make my cut as "decent knives", but they formed part of my learning process.  These knives I left in my workshop and started using them for odd jobs, since I did not care for them. They are now my most used knives of all.

The cleaver was secondhand blade I picked up at a junk store. I replaced the handle.

The sheath knife was hollow ground on a bench grinder and the leather hilt got a big ding in it from over zealous shaping. The sheath molding worked great and  the blade clicks neatly in place.  The blade was never heat treated, so it does not hold an edge.
