    These two are a couple of quick and dirty knives i recently finished up. They are both 1084 and are strictly no frills users. The wharny style is just a simple light weight epoxy soaked cord wrap, and is just made to be thrown in a bag as a utility backup knife for fishing, hunting camping etc. basically to cut rope or beat up on something you dont want to use a good knife for. Took about an hour not including the tempering cycles. The second one has a blue dymondwood handle (haven't bought any for a long time but came across a bunch that was free so figured why not use it). Its a user that was done for my father in law on short notice (forgot his birthday until 2 days before the date) and will basically be used for hunting and processing a bit of game. He will get a fancier one eventually but said he liked the rougher finishes that he doesnt have to worry about scratching up. I basically hit the whole thing on a 220 and then leaned into a buff with green compound to blend it out a bit and help limit corrosion. Like i said, they are quick, they are dirty, they are rough, but they cut well. Both were made the same day.

    Thanks guys. The wrapped one is 6.25 long, and the blue one there is just under 8 inches. The cord wrapped one is a scaled up version of a very crude small 5 inch of one i made last spring and carry every day for opening boxes, stripping cable, and general cutting tasks. The original was basically done from scrap, and done when a buddy asked me what i could make in an hour while he was at my house. It was ground to 120, heat treated with a torch, sanded to 120, tempered back with a torch, and wrapped with paracord soaked in CA glue. Since i found it so useful i decided to scale it up a bit and make another, since i had a small piece of stock lying around. I fing these small thing knives excellent as a back pocket carry knife when in a pancake style kydex sheath. I notice my wallet when i sit far more than the knife.
