It's been awhile since I made anything. Here you go. A few years ago a friend of mine asked me to make her a herb gathering knife. She is Croatian and is studying traditional herb lore and folk medicine. It took me awhile to get my act together. I have been working so hard setting up the new restaurant and kitchen that I'm starting to go stir crazy and this was a good mental break. Eastern Black Walnut heartwood from a tree that was left to rot for 40 years. Heartwood doesn't rot very well. Nothing was left of the tree but, the heartwood itself. A Marko paring knife was used to carve the handle and sandpaper to soften and smooth all the edges. The blade itself I will post later as I need to etch it and see what happens. The blade is based off of historical Viking finds. Enjoy.
