Y'all may recall the hunting knife I made in this thread:http://handymanwire.com/ubbthreads/ubbth...ge_a#Post699273
Well, I have a 2.5 year old son, and a 4.5 year old daughter. My daughter has long had a toy wooden knife, and it was time to make one for my son as well. I used the above knife as a pattern.
The blade of this one is 3/8" thick hard maple, and the handle is cherry. Construction is the same as my hunting knife, but I omitted the rivets, and used wood glue in lieu of epoxy. The finish is simple linseed oil.
Floyd loves it.
