    That's cool man! Do you grind your bevel before or after heat treating when your only grinding one side?

    Thanks ! I always grind before HT and let 0,6mm/0,8mm on the edge. On a short blade like this I'm not really afraid of deformations. Never tried a 6'' chisel but if I do I will surely let more stuff on the edge before HT... ;)

    That's a nice little knife. It has a real primal look to it.

    Cool knife. What did you do to stabilize the handle?

    Thank you :)
    The handle is stabilized with 3 layers of fiberglass resin. I wipe the exceeding resin between each layer so it don't look like plastic covering.
