Model Number 7. Lime Patina. Some funky file work and blade mod.
Schmucktelli Co Kiko paracord bead.
First time working on a tiny Number 4 Opinel. I made the tip blunt to be used a an emergency little flat head driver. I will probably patina the copper chain.
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.
