For a long time I have been using the standard Mora hook knife and have become quite accustomed to it. After watching people use the big twca cam knives, I was inspired to make my own.
Our source of steel was a leaf spring from a truck, not exactly sure of its composition but the results have been very impressive.
|After initial forging, the piece was heated once more and allowed to air cool.|
I hope you enjoyed seeing the birth of my new hook knife. I plan to make another soon, this time a larger twca cam style with a big handle.
