Would I happen to know that friend? [biggrin]
Looks good! Is that a hidden tang? What wood did you use for the handle?

Goddards books were a great help to me.  Looks good, use it and see where you'd like to improve.

Hopefully I will be able to improve my work with a 2 by 72 grinder that I will be ordering soon.

Would you be surprised to know I use a 4x36 from Lowes?

Ok, slightly modified, but still a 4x36

No way! It looks like you use a kmg or somthing. That just proves to show that skill is more important than fancy tools.
