One Piece Wood KnifeThis is carved from a single piece of basswood, including the pivot. It is 8” long overall. After carving the blade slot & shaping the blade to go in the slot, the difficult part is forming the pivot. Since it is cross-grain, it has to be kept fairly large and precisely aligned side-to-side, so I cut it with a #9-7mm gouge.
