A Few of My Winter Projects

Well sorry I haven't posted a lot lately, but It's not like I've been doing nothing. Here are a few of the projects I have done this winter.

This set is a fire steel and ceramic sharpener. Both are IA deer antler with palm wood caps. They came out OK. I'm going to try to get the antler to match a little better on the next set I make.

This one is a project I have been wanting to do for a while. A leather sheath for one of my Moras. I put a fire steel loop on it also. I made this one so the knife rides low on my hip. I hate wearing a pack and have a knife digging into my leg.

And finally, this is an old double bit I restored. I love this axe. If only it was not so big. Oh well, I probably wont be carrying this one on the trail, but it makes a great camp axe.

Hey IW,

On that double bit, next time you could grind down the inside (bottom of) the axe. I did that with one I had and it made for a much better axe in my opinion. I thought of doing both top and bottom, kind of a war axe profile, but decided against it.

If I find another at a yard sale, I may beard it, that would make for a much lighter axe.

Very nice work on the steel, sharpener & sheath. I'll have to do my sheath up like that. Very nice!

Very nice work! I am wondering about the mora in the pictures, is it the OD green model with the carbon blade? That was my first "bushcraft" knife, I can't find one anywhere anymore, mind selling it to me? Make it worth your time!
