Fathers day blade

Hi all

My daughter brought me a one inch blade, from Nic Westerman, for fathers day. 

I carved a handle from yew and put the blade into it. 

The handle was finished with Danish oil.

The blade will be used for finishing very tight curves and carving fine detail.

The blade is very very sharp :-)

I love fathers day.


  1. Nice gift, beautiful handle, it look's like yew :)

  2. Hi Brian

    There seems to be a split opinion on what the wood is but yew is winning :-)

  3. Yew it is, post edited accordingly
