    This is my first knife, was also my first solo HT. Was a gift for my god-sister on the birth of her first daughter.

    Nakiri
    Steel:O1 1/8"
    Handle: Claro walnut, G10, ebony, bocote
    Siracha forced patina

    Hey Jon, that's looks cool man. I like the ancient feel to it.
    Nice selection of materials.

    Did the hamon work out on O1? On my 1084 nakiri I couldn't get anything of interest. Likely have to go with 1095 or W2 for those wicked lines.

    Good work.

    Thanks, Dan.

    I didn't get anything for a Hamon, but it was worth a try.

    Hey Jon.

    That looks awesome for a first knife. I hope my first knife is to the same quality.

    Cheers.

    Thanks, Dan. I unfortunatlety have a bit of a dilemma for posting pics, because I created my imgur account with my Facebook account off my phone, which I can't access at work because of our firewall. Though I suppose I could take my workstation home and upload there.

    Thinkg out loud.
