DUN-D 33 Hunting / Survival Knife
« on: Jan 27, 2012, 10:08 PM »
While I wait for some items to arrive, I decided to upgrade my former knife to a new, longer hunting / survival knife.  (Don't ask about the other... long story... makes me sad.)  Anyway, using what I learned from my last knife build, I decided to make another.  Faster, stronger, better... 

Here's the beginning:

Started out as a 16" x 4" piece of 6mm sintra.


Cut out knife to include handle


Cut cross piece and wood handles


Here's rough assembly


Next stage is sanding down the "blade" (as seen by pencil markings) to give it an "edge".  Following by painting.  Handle will either be stained wood or wrapped leather.  Will add an end cap (pommel) also out of sintra.

Approximate measurements:
Overall length 16"
Grip Length 5"
Blade length 10.5"
Blade height (spine to edge): 3"

So cool.  Makes my puny tooth-knife thing look like crap.
Awesome looking so far.
