good to see you posting -- looking forward to pics of the new pattern.
Sorry about the roller coaster. They are a drag. Ten years ago, my mother in law died on my wife's birthday. Two weeks ago, again on the exact day, my wife's best friend died unexpectedly. So much for "happy birthday".
So, no worries about posting or grinding. Got to get the family healed first.
Oh, I'm using the heck out of Creekster #1. Still trying to find something about it I don't love. Nothing yet.

Here is the Scandi Gang!
In answer to your question, the knife was in rough shape when I received it. The edge is now a true Scandi with no secondary bevel and is actually intimidating to use like I do in my delicate wood carving.
A new design I've been working on, my version of a kephart.. with a very rough profile of a creekster at the bottom..
a rough profile pre heat treat, I will bring the grind up higher and give it a convex grind.
