First Contest

You know me- I like tools that are as beautiful to look at as they are fun to use. That's the basis of the Crazy Train knife project (still going on BTW). When I heard Helvie Knife company was planning a handle carving contest, I had to give it t try. Making all those knive for my project and not carving any myself (no time) was weighing on my mind, the pressure of a contest deadline was just the ticket for me to try a couple of the designa I had in mind. I entered twice, pics below. Helvie provided the 'knives', a bass handle with a dummy blade in them. I had to polish the blades a bit, they were too annoying as delivered.  Finish is two coats of Dip- poly/tung/spirit mix
