Max's knife

I ran into my friend Max on one of my rare trips into the coffee shop last week. He said he'd been looking for me, and to follow him outside. Max had been rebuilding a trailer and had the old leaf springs in his truck. Most leaf spring is made from 5160 spring steel and makes a good knife with the right heat treatment. I made him the first knife out these springs.

The start.

The finish.

I hope it serves him well.
