Project Ugly Knife...

A while back I got the urge to make a no frills, no BS bushycraft knife prototype. I had a woodlore style blank I was working on in CPM3V and decided to regrind it and reshape it. The pics that follow show the progression... here's the blade fully shaped and partially ground.

Bushcraft and fire practice... aw yeah.. :)

I got out on Saturday and before my coughing, tired lungs shut me down, I had a great time. Check it and enjoy...


I was specifically, out to accomplish the three elements of the planetbushcraft.com fire challenge. You can view the forum thread here These were my responses... and yes I know I used some of the footage from these in the other vid. :)
