Drop Point Utility Knife Revisited:

Well, I “fixed” this knife. I added the antler bolster and re-shaped the handle to have more interesting lines. I filled the core with pewter to give it a more substantial feel and added in some Viking inspired concentric circles. It looks so much better and feels so much better. There’s just one thing wrong with it. There was a bit of a problem under the handle where a slight hole peaked through so I patched it with some wood filler and tried to match the color but it didn’t match. So, if anyone is interested in this knife I am selling it at a discount. I was hoping to get $175 after I finished it but now I am only asking $100.

Knife Design Revisit:

There are some things about this knife that are good. The blade has a nice visual foundation but the handle feels like it was chopped from a broom and slapped on. After further review, I have decided to take it apart and re-built it based on this sketch. This will give it more interesting lines and that boost of character it is currently lacking. I will add in a little antler hardware for contrast and to push the handle length a little as well.
