    Wow amazing work!

    Looks like you could cut someone’s hand off in one stroke with that.

    I bet it was! Those huge flat grinds on each side of the knife must have been super difficult.

    Thanks, these profiles with smooth curves are my favorites.

    Fine adjustment of the guard was also very difficult, I lost two others in the process but in the end the result was great.
