Doar de dragul cioplelii

             Nu-i nici bol, nu-i nici lingură... spatulă, nici măcar...
A fost făcută de dragul bucăţii prea faine de lemn de nuc marmorat, şi pentru plăcerea de a mă "juca" cu noua bardă şi cu cuţitele ;)

Înapoi la linguri

           Proiectele din ultima vreme m-au ţinut departe de linguri. Calul de cioplit, caseta, kuksa, cuţitele... sper să am timp de nişte linguri de acum încolo.
           Am început cu una din lemn de corcoduş. Special creată la solicitarea lui Richard Heath (Fifty Two Spoons).

Knives handles

             First post on 2014. Is not about carvings, woodchips or sawdust... it's about knives.

             Encouraged by the success of making handles for two blades in the last winter, I ordered another 6 blades from Brisa Finland. Even if the the handles sketches were drawn long time ago, because of various problems that occurred in all this period, I haven't enough time to manage them. Until last weekend, when I started all six handles in the same time! Yesterday was finishing day. Only one (!) I had to destroy an rebuild. Here are images of three of them:


Mora-Sweden "C105" blade, black mulberry wood (Morus Nigra), antler, vulcanized fibre




Mora Sweden "Hunter" blade, walnut, brass, mosaic pin, vulcanized fiber
  


Mora-Sweden "Hunter" blade, antler and buffalo horn - SOLD



 Karesuando-Sweden blade, walnut, antler, bras and vulcanized fiber.
For decoration: rifle cartridge tube




Two "Hunters"



The other two, in the next post.
