    I have a few 'in the works' knives going on right now. I went out to the garage this morning with every intention of cleaning up the place.. then this happened. O1

    Lookin real good so far. I really am cleaning and organizing my garage today and yesterday. I do keep eyeballing my O-1 flat stock but have been able to fight the temptation. ... so far. Lol

    Tomorrow I will clean! lol

    I originally thought I'd use two brass pins in the handle, but I'm starting to think one in the middle might look nice too. I'll make a brass bolster in the front and leave the butt of the handle wood. Any suggestions on the pins, one or two?

    Personally i like a hidden tang like that done with a single pin. Two pins would be fine too, but one seems more traditional

    That's going to be really nice. I love the handle sketch.

    Looking good! Cleaning always seems to turn into working on something else, it just inevitable.

    Looks like a really good start. I'd go with one pin.
