Making a fixed blade pocket knife in O1 and micarta for every day carry

Posted in EDC, knifemaking, Leather working, metalwork with tags , , , , , on September 8, 2011 by Jim

I got to spend a great day with my dad making knives. I have been interested lately in having a fixed blade pocket knife so, I put together this pattern and we each made the same knife.

Here is how mine turned out:

It is sized like a neck knife, but I specifically designed it to be carried as an EDC (every day carry) pocket knife.

And here it is in its sheath. I made the sheath with the Loveless style cam so it makes a great ‘snap’ when you put it away.

It is comfortable in my front pocket or the leg pocket in my work pants.

Happy Making,

I plan to make this a set of three knives. I have two roughed out and plan to cut the third in a similar style to the Loveless chute knife.

Here is how far I got tonight.

These are in 01 steel.

Happy making,

I am starting work on a set of three hunting knives all based on Bob Dozier Patterns which are based on Bob Loveless patterns.

Here is your treat for tonight, the first patten:

If you make knives or are interested in making knives, go get a copy of ‘Knifemaking with Bob Loveless‘ right now and read it. This book is a good one.
