Last 3 Morakniv builds. 2 wood handle, 1 leather and wood handle.
2 with stainless Number 1 blades, other is a carbon steel Number 3.
Got my leather discs here: USAKnifemaker
I guess it isn’t really a mod, but actually a build. I ordered some Mora blades on Amazon:
Here is a little story board of a build. I think it is ironwood, then a small piece of ebony and a copper spacer. I put in a copper tube for a lanyard hole. I normally would not put a lanyard hole in this, but I want to balance out the other copper.
A number 10, 9, and 8 arrived. Love the walnut for hand carving.
Using my Flexcut mini pelican for some woodcarving on the handles.
The Boxer: A No.7 Carbone. It went through quite a transformation. The hammered texture came as I tried to save a bad metallic silver paint job. I carved the paint off with a Flexcut Mini Pelican knife. Then I refined the texture with the Dremel.
Ebony wood stain and a coat of semi matt polyurethane. Black paracord with a diamond knot. One off Apocalyptic Dog tag copper bead.
Originally the tip wasn’t going to be so square. I tried a few patina patterns. The handle shrunk along the way. I do use it everyday to open boxes. Instagram gave it some love.
I eventually changed the lanyard bead to a smaller, more squared shape. I also wanted to show the little curve in the back of the handle, so I went with the single strand instead of the full loop through.
