My old Bluegrass garden shear broke, and I thought it would be cool to make a knife out of it. I figured that it would be good for wedging and prying, in addition to the more pedestrian task if cutting things.
This is version 2. Version 1 was a quickie made from scrap oak. I thought the curvy handle would be equal parts comfy and cool-looking. It turned out to not look as good and wasn't comfy at all.
This maple version is rather plain, but quite comfy. The actual dimensions are random, because scrap.
My plan is to make the final handle out of aluminum, but if this maple survives the torture tests, I'll keep it. The swirly look of the bolts gun bluing on the nuts on the backside are just to make the bolts look less generic. The nuts aren't necessary, because wood is threaded, and that holds the blade well enough, but I thought it needed something on the other side to visually balance the bolt heads.
