Hello everybody, I've been lurking through the forum for a while now and figured I might as well sign up. It seems like there is a lot of friendly knowledge here. I decided to take a crack at making a knife but I wanted to keep my budget at about $0 for my first one. I had a couple of files and a good selection of sandpaper. I made the handle scales out of some rags and resin that was left over from a previous project. And used my old charcoal smoker to anneal and heat treat. I thought it turned out ok for a first attempt, my wife thinks I am a psycho who wasted a perfectly good weekend in the garage making something I don't need. How does it look to you guys? Point out anything that I should improve on my next attempt. Trying to do this on my phone and not sure I'm posting images property.
