The little cost as possible was my plan with the Bowie i did. If i had stayed with yew and not switched to blackwood, it wouldn't have cost me anything. I ain't gonna make a standard type knife....wheres the fun in that .. This time i think i'm gonna go for something special. Like you, its for fun for me. A reason to go a bit mad and do something different.
Not sure yet. I could easily make a knife for less than £50 (even factoring in the greatest expense that is fuel). The question then is, if I do, what to make? Obviously I can't just make 'a knife', that would be too simple
So, IF I do enter, shall I make:
A) a knife with as little total cost as possible (recycled steel, free wood, homemade charcoal fuel, etc)
B) a knife that comes in at £50 of materials (though it comes to £65 including the sheath according to the rules)
I'd only be entering for fun, not to win, so don't expect me to make a sinsible knife (or take it at all seriously!)
