Seeee! I'm not dead... yet.
Name: Rasp Hunter
OAL: 8 1/8"
Blade Length: 4"
Blade Material: Horseshoe Rasp
Handle Material: Aussie Coolibah Burl
As awesome as this handle material would have/should have looked, I won't be using it again unless I see it in person. Usually I have some pretty good finds while scouring the internet. It annoys me when they wet the wood down with water and that's the only picture they have of it.
Because! I get screwed on pieces like this. I did my best to save the piece. One of the scales had holes from the burl all the way through the scale. Of course, I claimed I got the handle material from a church, since it was so holey. Sadly, they didn't believe me.
I managed to seal it as much as possible and it actually did come out pretty nice. I'm not happy about the amount of work it took, when it should have been much easier than it was. As far as the design goes, it's not completely original. It's a hidden tang design that a crap load of people use.
I've never seen it in on a full tang knife, so I decided to try it out and see if I liked it. I think I do.
Anyway, I am around and about. Just a little bit on the busy side. I have a few updates that I'll be giving soon. Maybe a tactical marathon, similar to my 6 days of Rebar. Maybe~! Logan Pearce www.pearceknives.com
