Shiv #54 of 365 - Aluminum Knife #2

Shiv #54 - Aluminum Knife #2

And the sequel to the first Aluminum Knife.

Expect a goodly number of entries into this subseries. A number of shivs outside the Aluminum Knife nomenclature already use aluminum for their blades.

The tools I have for working these shivs somewhat limits my selection of metals, and so far I've found aluminum to be a great blade material because it's both feasible as a blade, being sturdy and capable of holding a fair edge, and it's soft enough to work with, from cutting to grinding edges to drilling holes for tang screws.
