wow , very nice .
i have a question .im new at this knife making . what is with the arc grinded out below the ricasso .i see a lot of knifes with them . is there a reason for them .i thought they may be used to strike a fire starter in the groove ?
Very nice work Cal, I love the look and the matching sheath as well!!!
It give you a location to sharpen to.
I also believe that when a knife is heat treated the steel expand and if the blade is real thin is will sometimes turn into a sin wave. This cut out area allows the blade room to expand.
If anyone else has a reason I would like to hear it.
I have always known the notch to be for sharpening as well as an aesthetic feature, but Cal's expansion theory makes sense as well
ok thanks guys .
Very cool Forge. Exquisite work. I love what you did on the sheath too.
Woooaaah! This is amazing, the way you matched that sheath just makes it that much better too
Real nice Cal. The dovetail really makes it stand out.
I'm such a fan of the matching sheath. Stellar work!
