Hoku Knife / Flint Knife

Just rediscovered this Hoku knife i made ages ago, the picture was taken at the time i made the knife, the handle/shaft is made from Hazel with a jute wrap to keep the blade in place.

The flint blade is made from a flake/shard of flint that has been struck off a large core and then roughly chipped and shaped to give a cutting edge, from what i remember it worked fairly well, will have to have a play sometime soon to re familiarise myself with it
