Knife 5 – Cthulu

Knife 5 is another Damascus blade with a Canary wood handle and a Cthulu mosaic pin in the lanyard hole.

Initially I was making a purple heart handle but it broke while I was clamping/epoxying. Oops. So I started over.

Scheduling for later because it’s a Christmas present.

Making knives

I have been collecting knives for more than 40 years.

There was a brief moment in the middle of when I stopped because most of my collection was stolen, which was hard to get past.

A couple of months ago I decided that I wanted to start making knives. This was very sudden and I don’t think anything in particular led up to it.

But I guess I’ve been noticing over the last few years that I didn’t have any hobbies. I would work, come home, have dinner and watch tv, and go to bed. And I really had no interest outside of work anymore.

This is weird, because I’ve always had hobbies like running and geocaching and camping and so on, that would feel a lot of time outside of work. But somehow, over the last few years, this has faded.

Anyway, I decided to make knives.

And my first few attempts have been very rewarding, if not artistically amazing.
