    It's rough. But I love it. 01 Tool, 1/8. Canola oil hardened. Next one is going to be a smaller neck knife, really want to take my time with it and will actually get proper scales. Cheers.

    great shape on this. love smaller knives. They just seem to make more sense to me. Big enough to do what i need them to w/o making a statement. Now, i also make some honkin' big knives too - because i do love to make statements as well : ) These are always the knives i feel are more practical/useful though.

    Nice one. There's nothing like completing that first knife. Except maybe when you do the first one with a nice finished handle; or the first sheath you make; or the first time you add some filework; or..... nevermind.

    I do have one critique for you: you need a better camera, or set up a cheap photo area with some lights. I'd love to see some better pictures of your work.

    So true Mythtaken, I am already swimming in designs for future knives, scales, sheaths etc.
    Good point on the camera work, I do have access to a much better camera and will definitely set up a better area for shooting rather than my dimly lit messy garage haha.
