    That is indeed a very nice piece of work! That's your first attempt at a hidden tang??? Beautiful choice of materials and your fit and finish look great!

    Super fit. I like the handle shape from round to rectangle. Nice looking knife man.

    Thank you gentlemen!

    Yea Jim, thats the first finished one. I have a few profiled from a while back that I never finished yet, but I was pretty pumped on this blade so I made sure I didn't start anything else until this was done. That's one of my biggest problems in my shop,. I start a knife.. then "oooo whats this?" half way through I see a poor old piece of rectangle metal crying for me to turn it into a knife too, so then I end up with a bunch of blades with no handles haha

    Beautiful work Mark, I love the contrast between all pieces. How long did you leave it in the acid?

    Thanks again guys!

    I dont know exactly how long but probably 3-4 minutes, ferric chloride 5:1 with water, then I spray it off with windex and give it a scrub with extra fine steel wool.
