The blade was made from an old broken wood chisel I found. The shadows in the picture made it a little hard to see but the texture on it actually looks like was flaked like an arrowhead. I used a deburring tip and a dye grinder for that. The handle was made from deer antler I had laying around.
The rivets are the screw type. I just ground and polished the slots off of them after I apoxied the handle slabs and tightened them down. As far as her using it, well lets just say she shoots the deer and I get to clean it. Lol. I dont mind though. I’m just glad she likes being in the woods with me.
