I have finished making my knife.

Hello there.

I would like to proudly show you my recently finished knife. I have skipped polishing part, because it was a nightmare and I think that I got to the point where I must abandon this project and go to the next one.

So there we go:

Steel O1 @ 60 - 61 HRC

Total lenght: 37.7cm
Cutting edge lenght- 24.1cm
Spine thickness:

Over the heel: 3.01mm
In the middle: 2.67mm
2cm from tip - 1.64mm

Thickness behind the edge 0.17mm (could be less).

Handle and saya made from cedar wood.
Ferrule made from stabilised California Buckeye burl

In my opinion it could be better, but as this is my first proper knife (I made two blades two years ago for fun) I think that it's not bad. Every attempt to correct things ends with making things worse.

This is a late birthday gift for my friend.

I am happy with that project and I really can't wait to make another knife.
