    Here is my first little Nessmuk.
    Made out of 01 steel, copper guard, white deer antler handle.
    First attempt at vine file work on the spine. Hope you guys like it.

    very nice file work and seeing all the copper used around here I may have to find myself a few good size pieces. A nice change from brass

    Going to have to try my hand on one of these once I finish up the razors I've been asked to make for fathers day. I have it down to 4hrs a razor including heat treatment.

    Nice knife. I like the look of copper. Is it harder to work with than brass?

    Copper I find is easier to work with as it is much softer

    Damn I wish I could do a razor in anywhere near that time. Getting a hollow that thin takes me absolutely forever. I find I have to slow the grinder way way down and cool constantly. I actually still haven't had one come out good enough that I bothered finishing it. Razors seem to be my kryptonite so I have given up on them for a while.
