Number 1 is pictured here numbers 2 thru 7 will come next week when my lightbox is done. From bar stock to finished knife all my work and I am hooked. You guys will never understand, but knife making has given me back my life.
It does look nice, what are the particulars? Steel type, etc...
I'm a beginner too, so congratulations on your first full knife.
I don't recall seeing grind marks on finished blades, but like I said I'm a beginner.
I know how you feel Im the same I had very little going on in my life because of my injury to my neck/lower back . Im lucky to be alive after being in a 1 ton truck that rolled end for end twice at 70 miles per hour. I tinker at this new hobby as much as I can till my neck hurts to much or arms give out. I was a very active person before this so this new hobby has opened a hundred new doors and alot of new friends that are down to earth people. Great knife by the way and dont piss off WILL clean out the tube . lol kellyw
