Exellent.  Most can't get the grind pushed far enough back, you did pretty good.   Look forward to see how the HT goes.

I like the bigger knife, good looking design there.  Don't forget to drill it out for your pins.  I also like to drill larger holes up and down the handle to lighten the handle.  Use the file to check your blade after you quench it to make sure it hardened.

That's a good thing! He knows what he's talking about. [wink]


I want a 2x72 pretty badly. . . but I'm having to budget myself, and that means I need to start having my metalworking pay for itself.
