Kipp and Sawyer

Kipp and Sawyer
Sawyer and his father, Kipp, at work making their first knives in the August 10-11 Intro to Bladesmithing Class. Note the dust masks and eye shields: necessary whenever grinding is being done nearby. Kipp's knife is a drop-point half-tang skinner with an exotic wood handle, a brass bolster and an O-1 blade. Sawyer's is a 5160 steel drop-point skinner with an elk antler full-tang handle.
