Its been quite a while since I've worked with bone and its something I really enjoy, so a few hours spare time recently allowed me to make a few items, one in particular, a bone knife, is something I've wanted to do for a while.
I wanted something primitive looking and not too refined, something an ancestor would have made, so it's a bone blade, hawthorn handle and it's fixed with pine pitch and artificial sinew. It's very comfortable in hand and I haven't put a serious edge on it as I've found it looses the edge quickly unless it's used on flesh or soft material, however if it's a serrated edge it works very efficiently and lasts a lot longer.
it would be good for use on fish, meat or as a skinning blade
and along side a victorinox farmer for scale.
While I was at it I thought I'd make a few other items too...
