Like most good dads, I try to help my kids be involved in what I’m involved in.  My 6 year old son Jared approached me the other day while I was drawing out knife profiles on a bar of steel and said that he wanted to draw one.  I got him a pad and pencil and he drew out a knife.  He wanted it with a deep blade, a big thong hole, and a round butt.  I made a couple of tiny tweaks, but this knife is Jared’s design.  He chose the red heart wood for the handle as well.  Turned out pretty nice, and Jared likes it.  It’s the top knife in the pictures below.
