Hi there, I have been going through the depths of the workshop on the farm and my parents place and have found a load of knives I've made and many others which will go up in later posts. 50p for scale.

What I am looking for ideally is a swap for an Enzo pk70 either flat or scandi grind, (but open to the other folding enzos), to replace one that was lost, or any of the bark river Canadians (I would love a bark river canadian special).

Depending on the offer, I am open to multiple knives in exchange for one or two knives that I am looking for.

First up is a lovely looking tank of a knife in recycled pre 1940s High carbon steel taken for a scything machine, with a sealed beechwood handle. This steel is strong. My own design (honestly), but have since found out that is similar to a spyderco serrata. I made this 15 years ago, have never used it and just been stored in a leather sheath.

Next up is an esee izula / Japanese inspired part tang knife, the blade is 01 tool steel and very hard. It has a scandi grind and the blade steel is the same as Mark Hill's knives, as I got the steel off cut from him (cheers Mark). The handle is teak, and a plywood insert, with copper pins. This feels so much better in the hand than a real esee izula, but not suitable for the same abuse.

Next is a long handled crook knife, this a one handed draw knife, 01 tool steel with a slight bend, screwed and bound with 1mm cord wrap. The handle is Hazel, and has a beech sliding sheath that is a pressure fit. This is so comfortable when removing bark from green wood, and can be used two handed for push cuts away from the body on fixed/held wood.

Next is a high carbon steel folding knife, this was the first knife I ever made, and is truly a rustic joy in the hand. High carbon steel from a very good quality circular saw blade, in a horn handle, friction fit and very safe to use.

Lastly is knife that came about from a talk with Craig from black wolf bushcraft in Kent. Again my own design, and addresses the problem with hand strength, the upsweep of the handle cradles the hand and gives a lot of support. The blade is the same 1940s high carbon steel, and heat treated to be around 60-62 rockwell hardness, it has an Ash wood handle and steel pins, again japanese inspired part tang, but very strong.

I am very happy to keep this last one if there is no interest. It is a a dream to carve with and is easily my favourite....but I love making them, rather than using them.

I have a lovey file folding knife somewhere too, just need to find it, and I'll include that in the list, that knife is like a razor

Cheers Gra

Forgot to say, the last knife on the list....so far, is a chisel convex grind. As I already said, a joy to carve with.

I thought I would add, that I would be interested in a Spyderco Gayle Bradley folder as a swap too.

More sharps to come on a new swap listing soon.

Bump

I want these to go to homes that would get use out of them. I mainly use folding knives, and open for trades.

Anyone got a manly comrade they want to swap?
