    I’m knew here and into knife making in general. I was inspired to start making knives after restoring my father’s old axe. I’ve never worked with wood or steel prior to that, but fell in love with it and now am expanding into knives.

    I’m working on my first blade now.

    Looks like a great start Jay. Nice work. Welcome to the forum. Hang onto the old axe handle. You never know when some old piece of scrap adds just the touch you need. Cheers. Russ

    Great looking nakiri. Love those knives.

    First tip. Grind it thin. Every new knife maker makes their first knives too thick.

    Welcome
