    Figured I should show a finished blade. This is a drop point skinner (for lack of a better name) that I made. This was knife #3. I've got a few more ready for heat treat as gifts. This looks much bigger in the picture than it is. It's 0-1 with a wenge handle. Hardened to 60 RC. I need to get a real grinder. This was mostly file work and sandpaper as I only have a 4x36 to work with and plunge lines are tough for me on that setup. [​IMG]

    beauty and sometimes just a single wood can be much better looking than anything

    The only thing I would change would be to flip the scales so that the grain of the wenge followed the curve of the handle better. But this was a learning opportunity.

    Nice work. I think it looks cool with the grain going that way.

    Nice knife. I like the grain as it kinda flows into the curve of the blade very well
