I made a couple of bucksaws for a friend on here. This is a copy of the second one i made him, it's made from white oak with brass pins. The blade doesn't fit into the handle as it did in the first one i made, this time it just slips into the leather bag. I think putting a slot into the handles weakens them but i may have worked out a solution, that's why this is Mk 2 and not 3 .The centre piece is almost as long as the blade so that will prevent it being bent in my pack all it needs now is a cover for the blade. The brass pins were given to me and the leather i cut from an old sofa someone had dumped over my local fields. I'll put some pics up of Mk 3 when i've made it.
