My friend Jake taught me a lot about birthday presents. Someday when I finish writing up my book of guidelines that I use to keep myself sane, one of them will be a variation on what he told me about gift giving.
This is the knife I made him for his birthday. It’s made of 3 pieces. A knife blade from a box of kitchen impliments someone was throwing away, a piece of copper tubing left in my garage by the previous owner, and a chunk of EMT from a some pieces I dumpstered recently.
Spent some time in the garage with a hammer, a grinder, and a file to put it all together into this.
