Recycling is not a waste of time !
I got given this old pair of gardening secateurs some time back which were no good for anything apart from striping the good old carbon steel blade from .
This blade was first annealed and reworked before being heat treated and sharpened and then mounted into a Red deer stag antler tip handle
It was finished off with a dyed braided natural sinew wrap and a Victorian era hammered copper lanyard tube , yeah its not pretty but will live again as a functional cutting tool and was purchased from me by a living history reenactor .
Custom knives , sheaths and gear from email@example.com
Here is my first stamp I placed on a shirt I had done. The carving was tough but still enjoyed the work and would like to go for it again.
