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.

Fifty shivs later and we see the next Beamshiv, this time made with a SteelTec beam.

Splendor abounds.

You can see the video on the YouTubes right here:

I figured I should get another spool shiv made.

I am a fool for spools.
