    I have not been making many knives in 2017, hopefully that will change in 2018. Here is a little guy I have almost finished. The blade is 3/8" (no thats not a typo) thick at the guard and forged from 5160. The handle is mostly mild steel with a little wood. All the metal has been given a heavy etch. As always comments are welcome. The name came to me when I was showing a knife to a guy and he asked what you could do with it. I said paring knife, gutting fish, etc and he stopped me and said, that might be a little light duty for the fish I catch. Hopefully this one would hold up to the task.

    So I decided to make a coffin for my knife. The box is ash (Scrap and off cuts) I added weathered brass to the corners, scratches and all.

    Love the knife and workmanship ! just gorgeous!
    But my question is ...please correct me if I am wrong, ....is that regarding Canadian laws on knives, that a trench knife or a knife that enclose all fingers is deemed
    illegal in Canada? I have been asked many times to make this type of knife....and just itching to make one...but don't want to take the risk.

    My understanding is that if the individual fingers are enclosed than it's prohibited. I could be wrong
