My first attempt, was meh, and not worth posting.
I tried before to grind a bevel with my cheap harbor freight 1x30 belt grinder, and it didn't go well. Even made a bigger platten and a angle jig and still not good.
So I made a filing jig and 100% hand file my bevels. This knife is made from a flat stock of D2 I got from Jantz last year. It has a flat "grind" (more like filing), nothing fancy. My first set of scales cracked when pinning so I had to let epoxy cure then grind it off and start over. These scales are walnut I got from Jantz at the same time I got the steel. My file work, well, it needs some work. But to be fair, this was my First ever attempt at any file work.
I didn't sand the blade beyond 220 grit.
The pins are mosaic in the front 2, then stainless on the rest.
It has many many flaws, but it's a learn as you go process and I'm still learning. I'm nowhere near as talented as you guys who make knives and post them on here regularly, but gotta start somewhere.
Anyway, on to the pics! Advice and critiques are welcome.[img]http://i587.photobucket.com/albums/ss312/BG12693/IMG_1434.jpg
