So picked up a Green River 8 inch butcher knife off Ebay.


Reprofied the blade and added a new handle.


ended up messing up the handle the first time.
So redid it again today.


Kinda going for a french style knife may still profile it some more, but kinda like the way it looks now.
Also have some leather coming to make a couple sheaths for some other knife and this one.
This is my first time doing this.

LMK what you think.

Thanks for the kind words. I hope to do more in the future. Just need some better tools. Drill press and bandsaw would be helpful.

Great job DS!! How did you treat the blade to get a more authentic finish/color? I have a Green River Dadley that I need to do. I like what you did.

Great job on that knife. I have three old butcher knives I need to get back to and finish.

Say...that's not bad at all...and I like how you also re-worked the grip, so you have a nice looking knife with a nice piece of steel.

Finally got around to making a sheath for this knife.
Nothing special. Still needs some finishing.
