Hi all! Glad to be here. I'm a total newbie from Toronto. Only very recently decided to make my first knife (pictured). I hope it's okay to post pictures? Blade is 01 steel. The scales are oak. I mostly made it just to see if I could. I only used a hack saw, loads of sand paper, a coping saw, and a bunch of files, with a home made filing jig. Also hardened and tempered. It's not a well balanced blade. The handle is too short for the blade length. And the blade is a bit stabby, if I'm honest. It's plenty sharp though. I used a lansky 5 stone system to sharpen it. Sharp enough to shave.
