    Here are some pics of a knife I've been working on over the past few days. I changed up the shape slightly due to some feedback. Feels like I'm starting to get the hang of things, though I'm not going to talk about how long it actually took me to finish.

    Here's the blade heat treated and ready to be ground. Checking out how it looks with a random handle.

    The blade is ground now, and the handle is roughly shaped.

    A dry run of putting everything together.

    This is how I'm putting the knives together at the moment. I may end up putting a pin in the handle for added strength, but the will have to happen in the future.

    The knife has been glued, and the glue has set. Now time to get back to some grinding on the handle, and some finishing sanding.

    I'll have some finished pics up in the morning. Thanks for looking!
