Crooked Knife Series: No 2

Here’s the second in my series on crooked knives. Like all my crooked knives this one is chiseled beveled. That means the bevel is only on one side and the opposite side is flat. My bevels range in slope from about 30° to about 15° which gives me a range of carving angles that I can use in order to either gently shave or more deeply cut the wood. Most of my bevels are set at about 20° because I like to remove thin slices as opposed to larger chunks. I have got several blade blanks ready to be mated to handles and most of those blanks have bevels in the 18° to 20° range.
