So I haven't had a lot of time to spend in the shop these past weeks but the calendar on my wall has me scared as February is nearly gone. I figured I'd better go ahead and get this thread started. I decided on a more or less classic Scandi design with a peened tang (That may prove to be a fatal mistake for the knife and me, but nothing ventured....) For the blade, I decided to break away from my usual O1. Instead I'm using 1/8" 1084. I won't bother showing the design; instead, here's the profiled shape. I still haven't decided on the handle. I have a few options mulling over. I need to make a decision soon. The scandi grind may be simple but getting it right is another matter. This thing has been kicking my bum all over the place. I think maybe I finally got it with blade number three. You guys can tell me if I should be moving on to number four. Here it is, rubbed down with 180grit to take some of the grinding marks out. I also started rounding the back end for peening. Next up, many hours of hand sanding.
