Turned out really nice. PM me when you have your first one up for sale. up

Thanks for all the kind words everyone and the advice from the experienced knife makers. It does not fall on deaf ears and is much appreciated.

I was afraid you were going to say that! Lol

Thanks for the info, I’ll take it to 220/240 tomorrow before heat treat.
This one is likely going to be cold blue finish so I want to get the finish sand pretty even for sure.

FiremanJG: I made it with stabbing in mind for sure, which is why I did the false edge on top front half, but also gave it the big belly for slicing

Nice lookin knife sir!

Mike, great info sir on the sanding. I wonder how much time you saved whoever is paying attention!
