The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
So last year I built a knife which was in the largest part designed by committee.
This year I'd love to do the same. I've got a number of projects that I'd like to finish. But I'd really enjoy a run up to this new one.
Just in case you missed last years here are a couple of links so you can check it out. It ended up looking like this:
The initial thread: http://www.iknifecollector.com/profiles/blogs/a-knife-by-comittee-c...
The final thread: http://www.iknifecollector.com/profiles/blogs/the-final-committee-k...
So now that we've gotten the introductions out of the way for those I weren't involved last time:
What am I going to build this time? Last time I wanted to stay limited to what I had in stock on materials. This year there's no such restriction. Any steel, (provided I can get my grubby little hands on it) and any handle materials is fair game (provided I can afford it:-)).
Any design and any feature as long as it's a fixed blade. So how about we start brainstorming?
Let's start with the size? How big would you like this blade to be? How about the handle?
3"blade for EDC? 4-5" blade for Hunting? 2" blade for office carry? 6" blade or larger? Bowie sized? Camp chopper?
And keep in mind, just like last year, majority (or the law of averages) rules!
I'll try to not influence what the group decided because as the maker of the knife I have influence enough already.
Let's get talking. I hope to get started on the knife in about 2,5 months!
(ps, if there's certain knives you like that have certain features that you like. Just show them off and tell us about the things you like about it.
Blade size first! Then we'll start talking blade shape, Blade steel! handle type and shape and materials!
Last offcourse is the sheath!
