handmade carving knife to make lures!lathe carving knife
Three different woods...2 cherry, 2walnut, and 1 Koa. 5 layers glued together. 5/16 inch drill bit drilled into wood block. After hole drilled...I turned the wood in handle for a comfortable shape...then ground the butt end of drill bit into knife blade shape. Heat treat and temper the blade....then epoxy the drill end into the wood handle. It took me two days to make, only cause I had to let the glue dry where I glued the wood together...the rest I did in one afternoon...yesterday!
