    I have made knives about a 1.5 years now. My dad, who is an electrician, wired up my garage with 240v and i wanted to repay him the favor. I hope the knife is enough, he worked hard and did a real professional job naking the sheetrock smooth and all afterward.

    O1 steel, black walnut scales, nickel silver liners and bolsters. I started doing slotted nail pulls and odd shaped shields (on wood and micarta handles), not sure what other people think about it, i am interested in your thoughts.

    That’s a really great looking knife.I bet your day will be extremely proud to carry a knife made by his son. And it’s great of you showing your appreciation for his hard work with your hard work. The slotted nail pull and the odd shield are really cool imo. Great work can’t wait to see more from you that’s for sure.

    I havent seen one like that! Normally when i think of an electricians knife, i think of a jack knife with a spear blade and a flat screwdriver blade. I can see the curved portion being used to strip wire, is that its purpose?

    To my knolledge, yes.
    I have a simular blade on a multitool and it is very handy for stripping wire
