Cuchillo de piedra / Stone knife

Hace ya unos días, logré hacer mi primer cuchillo de piedra. Una hoja de novaculita (más gruesa de lo que debería ser...) enmangada en acebuche usando pegamento de resina de pino y tripa. No es el mejor cuchillo del mundo, pero me gusta.

A few days ago i made my first stone knife. A novaculite blade ( thicker than it should be...)  on a wild olive tree handle, with pine pitch and guts to hold it. Not the best knife, but i like it.

  1. That looks great - I really like your choice of handle. I love when they look well used on the day they are made!

  2. Nice knife! Some of my favorite stone knives are not the elegant looking ones, but the crude beat up looking knives that you are not afraid to abuse.

  3. Beautiful job. A knife that seems what had to be: an utility utensil.
