Smaller knives, tantos and rooster spurs - Stormcrow - 03-17-2018

I like making big knives, but of course make small ones too.  It's actually more difficult for me to make a 4" blade than a 12" blade. 

Here are some littler ones that recently left the shop for new homes.  All are 80CrV2 steel with marine epoxy-impregnated wraps.

Two tantos.  The long, slim one has an 8 7/8" long blade.  The little kwaiken is a 4" blade, 4" handle, with hemp cord for the underlay on the wrap and paracord on top.

And two rooster spurs.  The top one has a 5 1/2" blade, the bottom a 4" like the original.  Both have fully sharpened top edges.  This was a his-and-hers set, hence the pink camo cord on the bottom one.  Big Grin
