Rasp Hunter by Logan-Pearce Rasp Hunter by Logan-Pearce
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.

Strange.

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. :D

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~!

I rather dig the small cracks and imperfections in the burl, gives it a little character. And agree with whoever above said a dyed burl could look great too, there are some amazing dyed burl pieces out there.

Nice little knife Logan, I make a similar 'broken back' style. I usually use Cyanoacrylate (crazy glue) to fill those pesky holes n cracks in burl for thin cracks use the watery type and for bigger holes I've found the gel type works well, your local 'beauty' supply will carry several types at a decent price. Hope that helped.

Love the shape of this blade.
The rasp texture really enhances the overall finish nicely.
Great work.

it's a pity the wood didn't work out better, because the handle looks great...one of my favorite materials

I was pretty bummed about it. I mean the wood itself looks awesome. I have more on the way, I figure I'll start filling the pits with resin or something, because I've seen some really nice pieces out there.

shame about the holey burl
I think a subtly tinted maple burl would look great on this knife

Love how you've kept the rasp pattern on the blade, extending down the spine as well.! The handle looks fantastic as well, both in shape and material.
Rest assured Logan I WILL buy some of your stuff someday :P

Thank you! I think next time I'll make the triangles be on the face side of the blade. I think both are cool, but I like the triangles better.

Oh okay. I guess what I meant was, how did you put your name/logo onto the blade like that?
