    I really like the look of it. Its different than the normal but still holds that traditional look to it. Very nice!

    Cool!

    I would carry and use it with a smile. Nothing to be overly critical with. A great "first".

    I can only imagine how much hard work went into it. Keep it up, that knife looks nice to me.

    Looks like a very handy knife, I don't hate the red G10, really like the double long pulls (maybe that could be your signature?). Looks like a fantastic start to a very hopefully long career.

    Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments. I think my next two will be sodbusters, one unlined in red and one with brass hardware in ??? Maybe toxic green?

    Hold on a minute son. Don't be quite so quick to jump on the sodbuster wagon. Sometimes accidents provide the background for great things. There's no shortage of sodbusters on the market, but I don't know of many light weight work knives with sheepfoot blades. Or wharcliff blades.

    While I like what you've done there, I'm wondering how well it would come off as a don'on purpase' kind of thing? Look at the popularity of the sway back jack. Now if there was a feather light wharnie available with G10 handles, would there be a demand?

    I'm not saying yea or nay, but just to hold up and give some contemplation to the thing.

    Very cool knife, especially for a 1st attempt. Great job on the blade/liner lineup.

    I think so.

    Well........the one sodbuster is for someone.

    As for making one of these on purpose, well, I guess tomorrow I'm designing the "backpacker." I think there would be a market for a well made, semicustom, lightweight work knife. I know I'd carry one.

    That looks dang fine Brian. I agree with everyone else that there is something pretty neat in how a bunch of screw ups can turn out in such a great way. Keep up the good work.

    Wow, the last knife I made was out of cardboard for my daughter. And it was a fixed blade. I'm impressed.

    It's a great looking for first one. I love the double long pull, you have to continue with it.
    The blade shape is my favorite.

    Haha, oh yeah I am! I'm going to work on a sodbuster design today, and a semi-soddie with a nice wharncliffe blade.
