Knife Upgrades

It's not pretty, but this is what I've coined my "campfire knife." I forged this knife as my first trial at making a knife using the forge and an anvil. It worked well for carving marshmallow sticks and such around the campfire in our back yard. But, it was unsafe to carry and the handle was uncomfortable. So, I made a simple sheath to keep the edge covered. It has no belt loop to keep it slim; I just carry it in my back pocket or carry it by hand. I had some paracord lying around so this was my first attempt at wrapping a handle with it. It isn't pretty, but it sure can be useful around the campfire.
