New Knives

The Crazy Train Knife Project taught me a lot about making personna blade knives, and I've learned some more since.  I've been experimetning, looking for one or two handle designs I can make quickly, repeatedly and inexpensively.  I ocassionally make knives for a teacher to include in their beginners class kit, and for a club that tries to keep a few on hand for new members, I was lookig for a way to help speed up making small productions runs and make them more cost effective. Here's one:

 
 
Nice fat Teardrop handle, actually a collection of flat sides- I hate it when a  knife rolls.
 
Here's the other:
 
 
A slimmer Quill handle knife, narrow at the bck with a little more mass at the front end of the knife.
