The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
This is the tiniest minion I've ever made. A friend of mine wanted me to make him a knife. One day he came to my workshop to have a cup of coffee. As we were drinking the coffee, he said he wants to see the latest blades. When I showed them, he took the smallest blade and said :"THIS is MY knife!". It was really funny - my friend is 195sm tall and weighs more than 130kg. And this huge man was standing in the middle of the workshop, holding the tiniest knive and was happy as a child at Christmas.
He wanted me to make him a scandi (or suomi) tipe knife. And so we choose the handle material and the sheath tipe. This was the first ever scandi knife I've ever made and it came up really nice. The handle is alder, impregnated with linseed oil and polished with carnauba wax. The sheath has a wooden insert and the knife fits in it with a really nice "Click!"
But enough talking - here are some pictures:
