Craft Knife Proposal
This is a drawing I made of a craft knife that I'd like to machine but don't have the tooling for. It's based on a knife made by Olfa. I originally posted with the intent to make a small batch of these for sale, but it would be too much an undertaking for me alone. If anyone in the future is interested in this, I'd like to hear from you!
The jaws would be made of tempered O1 or A2 steel, the grip of 303 stainless, and the stem of the handle would be brass. The grip pattern itself could take on many forms, but I was imagining something similar to the drawing.
In case you're curious, the drawing was done on my little drafting board in pencil.
