Fixed Blade knife in Birdseye Maple
I finished my latest project, a fixed blade knife in birdseye maple. The knife blank is made by a Finnish company, Enzo, and this is their smallest knife, a model they call the Elver.
I bought the knife blank already formed and tempered, and I put on the handles, with red liners, and brass pins. I loaned a coworker an Elver to skin his elk, and it did great at a task that is real hard on knives. This knife is perfect for this purpose, or carving wood. Its a bit overkill for backpacking, but its fun to have a substantial knife in the backcountry.
