Saved from the bin

I well and truly stuffed this one up! :o As I was knocking on the yew section it caught on the tang and pushed it out. I rushed off to the latest drama in the house and away it set.

Very cross and hovering over the wheelie-bin I caved in an kept it as I'm a sucker for a bit of polished Yew.

So I made an Oak bolster sandwich, reground the blade and made it into my own carving knife, to live with the gouge and spoon knife and kept away from nasty jobs like fitting carpets, cutting plastic and opening paint tins.
