First Push Daggers

Hi Guys, it has been a while since I have been on or posted. Life gets in the way sometimes.

These are the first push daggers I have ever made. And yes, still on my 1x30" Frankengrinder
I did these for one of my friends. He wanted these for his office and employees.

I know I still have a long way to go in knifemaking but pretty pleased with these and stands.

We wanted all hardwoods and each one different. These are fully functional but will mostly
be displayed.

Front row: Curly Koa and Stabilized Satinwood on raindrop Damascus.
Back row: African Blackwood, Stabilized Curly Walnut, Honduran Teak, and Ebony Gaboon
O-1 Steel Rc 61 (heat treat done by ATalley)

Stands are Walnut from Indiana and placard inlay

All comments and mentoring is Very Welcomed.

Those look great, Troy! Now don't you wish you had done the Push Knife KITH? You're really squeezing every drop of juice out of that 1x30 ! The stands are excellent too ......

You have every right to be proud of those push daggers. Excellent work and the stands complement the beautiful knives.

Thanks guys !!! That was fun to build. I will probably make more now that I have the concept.
I also helped in the heat treatment of the steels. ATalley is a good teacher.

Ray - I still have a lot of juice left in this frankengrinder

Thank you for all the kind comments !!
