    Well I've gone and done it. I've made my first fixed blade knife.

    This was a pretty "quick and dirty" job. It's a simple peeling knife I made as a replacement for my wife's favourite one that she accidentally threw out with a pile of potato peels.

    I should have used a thinner steel but this 3/32 O1 was all I had on hand. It was a pain to grind the bevels on that curve. It's still a bit too thick in the centre, but I've sharpened it a couple of times since this picture and it seems to do the job.

    This is a slippery slope. Next thing you know I'll be getting a proper forge!
