During the Faire this summer we picked up a couple of new knives from the new blacksmith there. This week Chip finished up their cases.
As you can see, the longer case measures a little over 14″ long and the smaller measures about 8″ long.
The shorter case was made for our nephew Jacob. We purchased the knife for him for his birthday present and Chip made the case for his Christmas present. As Jacob is not old enough to carry a knife it is being made to be worn with his Ren Faire garb and his Dad will hold it for him the rest of the time until he is older. But it is cool.
A similar case would cost $50.00
The second knife we bought for us. I thought we were going to use it as a kitchen knife but Chip decided that it deserved its own case. As it has never been used it will enter Hawk Studio inventory until it either sells or I decide I need it in the kitchen.
A similar knife case would retail for $80. This combination of hand-forged knife and case retails for $300.00
Both knife cases were made to be worn on a belt without the need for a knife frog. Both are dyed in a Mahogany stain.
For anyone wondering, Chris and Jean have been at their house most of the day with various people, presumably assessing the damage and what to do next. It did not look any better today, though the first floor windows are boarded up. It was in today’s paper so there were alot of folks just walking by out of curiosity. This is not going to be a quick fix by any means. My heart goes out to them.
For Food on Friday I will post about our Halloween breakfast that the boys and I made this week. Chip LOVED this recipe. Hope you will too.
