    Tell us about how you hardened and tempered it. Describe the process. A prospective buyer or trader would want to know.

    I would suggest you add a sharply focused picture of it laying flat on a clear background with maybe a ruler right underneath the knife. Some of your pictures are taken at angles which don't show the knife in the best light. A great picture will make the sale or trade easier for you.
