A little bushcraft knife i made

I made this from an old file using some hand files and a hairdryer. Very satisfying project.
A knife making friend gave me a few tips.

Have a go.

Should be good for whittling, paring and small game (though I did dress a deer with one that size once).

What was the hair dryer for?

Hi Paul,

The hairdryer is to pump oxygen into the forge to create more heat. Instead of a bellows.
